Donations procedure

Donations procedure

Many families chose to remember their loved one with charitable donations in lieu of flowers, to a specific cause that was important or relevant for them. Appropriate charitable organisations may include a favourite charity of the deceased. If he or she suffered an illness the specified charity may be a medical research organisation that works for a cure in that area.

If the family has requested donations to a specific cause or charity in lieu of flowers, you can choose whether to make such a donation. These may be made on the day of the funeral, online or at one of our local offices. If you do, you need to do this in a timely fashion (within 10 days of the funeral service) so that the family can include you when writing thank you notes after the funeral.

We are on hand to assist with setting up and collection of charitable donations on your behalf.

Donations Procedure Steps:

  1. The family announcement in the newspaper should be closed "Family flowers only please, or no flowers please but donations for XYZ may be sent to A.W. Lymn The Family Funeral Service or submitted online at www.lymn.co.uk/obituaries"
  2. If a retiring collection is to be taken at church or at the cemetery or crematorium chapel, then the permission of the Minister or Authority must be sought.
  3. All donations received are acknowledged directly to the donor when a name and address is given..."Thank you for your kind donation received today. Please note that the family will not be advised of the names of donors until the donations list is closed approximately one month from the date of the funeral; at that time the amount of donations received will be forwarded to the selected charity and the family advised of the names of the donors and the total amount received."
  4. For security all donations are banked in a "Client Donations Account" at Barclays Bank; this account is operated free of charge by the Bank and no interest is credited.
  5. Any Donations sent online can be increased in line with the Gift Aid rules by the click of a button, and if posted with a relevant declaration can be handled in the same way.
  6. Approximately one month after the funeral, the donations list is closed and a cheque for the total amount forwarded to the charity together with details of the family and the deceased, and a list of the individual names, and individual amounts donated. This acts as an independent check on the accuracy of our records.
  7. When the money is forwarded to the charity, the family is sent a list of the names and addresses of the individual donors and a note of the total amount forwarded to the charity. For reasons of confidentiality, the individual amounts donated are not released to the family.
  8. The operation of our donations procedure is audited annually by the Chartered Accountants. BDO LLP.
