This Christmas join us in remembering those we have lost

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity is offering a Tree of Light commemoration service, Books of Honour, and an online dedication page to support those who have faced the loss of a loved one this year.

Join our community commemoration event at Roman Park Hall, in Aylesbury on Sunday 10th December from 5pm, led by our chaplain and Bereavement Service Team, where you will hear from our Hospice and Charity staff plus uplifting songs and music and a moment of reflection.

A virtual remembrance service will be available via our website throughout the festive period, to view at home from wherever you may be and as often as you wish.

This year, we are also offering a chance to view this virtual service on screen at Aylesbury Vale Crematorium on Wednesday 13th December at either 9am or 6pm.

"We recognise Christmas can be a very emotional occasion, a time when we particularly think of loved ones who are no longer with us" says Ann Kenny, the Bereavement Support Team Lead at the Hospice. "These last couple of years have been an enormous challenge for everybody, and sadly, many people have faced the loss of a loved one with little outlet to express their feelings properly."

Dedicate a light in memory of someone special to illuminate our beautiful Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity remembrance tree. Situated outside the Hospice itself, the tree will shine throughout the festive period as a symbol of the light those we have loved and lost have brought to our lives. You can add your Light dedication via a form on the Charity's website event page.

The Charity is also offering the opportunity to write a dedication to your loved one to appear in the Books of Honour. These will be available to view at the main Tree of Light service at Roman Park Hall from 4pm, as well as on the additional dates listed in the service section on the Charity's website.

You can also create an online dedication message. Anyone who dedicates a message will have this automatically added to the online dedication page, allowing friends and family all over the world to view. This service is available through a link on the Charity's website event page.
