If you have recently lost someone dear to you, we offer our deepest sympathies and condolences. We are incredibly grateful to you for considering us at this difficult time.
At a time of such sadness, it can bring solace to do something positive in remembrance of your loved one. In the past, flowers were often a way to pay tribute at a funeral. But now many families are requesting a donation in lieu of flowers.
Setting up a Memorial Fund can be a comforting way of bringing family, friends and colleagues together to remember, pay tribute and celebrate precious memories of your loved one.
Set up an online fundraising page to raise funds in memory of someone you've lost or in honour of a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary of theirs.
Using our partner site iDonate, you can create a free, personalised online tribute page that can be dedicated to the memory of your loved one. Your page can be customised with a story and photgraphs that can be shared by email and across social media, with family, friends and colleagues who may like to pay tribute online.
Your friends, family and co-workers can safely and easily contribute online to this fund using a credit card, debit card

Holly was a young, healthy and active music teacher who loved to play hockey when she was diagnosed with stage 4, terminal Oesophageal Cancer at just 26 years old. Determined to continue fighting, Holly was accepted into a clinical research trial where after 3 months, her cancer was no longer present.
“The only reason that I’m still alive today is because of research into this cancer which is funded by charities like the OCF. The work that you do in fundraising for the OCF has very tangible, real effects in the everyday lives of people like me. Thank you.”
