Floral tributes or donations

Flowers - classically beautiful

Floral tributes and flowers can say so much. It’s why  the natural beauty of flowers have been used by humans to express their sympathy and thoughts during bereavement for centuries – a living tribute to the deceased.

Back in Roman times, it is thought (and there is firm evidence to suggest)  that flowers were used to adorn bodies. And, of course, the practice continues today in a very similar fashion.

Donations – a way to give something back

Cash donations to charity might not have the historic legacy of flowers – but they are a modern way to pay thanks to a particular organisation. Donations can also simply fund raise for a preferred charity that was close to your loved one’s heart. It’s a way of giving a little back to the community or society in honour of the person that has passed.

Recently, Maddock have found that mourners are increasingly being asked, or are deciding themselves, to make donations to a specific charity in place of flowers. Roughly, around a half of the funerals we carry out now involve some sort of charitable giving. It’s an uplifting thing to see.
