Aubrey Kirkham Funeral Directors

Donations Policy

A policy statement by Aubrey Kirkham Funeral Directors regarding donations in memory of a deceased person, given at the time of a funeral service, in lieu of floral tributes.

Our ongoing effort in providing transparency and traceability of all services carried out by Aubrey Kirkham’s and relating to those monies (donations), and the manner in which they are accounted for and handled, the Directors here feel it is vitally important that the policy of Aubrey Kirkham Funeral Directors in relation to collating and disposing of charitable donations by this Company is set out here
and made very clear to everyone.

Donations MUST be paid direct to the Family, put in the donation box provided at the funeral, paid direct to the Charity(ies) or donated online on a donations page which we will set up on every occasion through ‘Memory Giving’ on our website ( and follow the ‘donations’ link, or by scanning our QR code available at all services.) This is for our team’s and our security and for the reassurance of the donors.

Any donations paid into either of our Offices, at Frankwell, or Four Crosses, will be counted in the presence of the donor and an official receipt will be given for them at that time. Any cash received by us will be banked into our ‘donations account’, which, for our further security and for the reassurance of all our client’s, is audited by our Accountants.

We will hold those donations for ‘about’ 28 days, as quite often donations in the form of cheques, made payable to the pertinent Charity, are forwarded to us through the postal system. We then send those donations out to the appropriate Charity, under cover of a full written letter confirming all details, through the postal system.

A copy of that letter, together with any cards, letters or envelopes giving the identity of the donors, is sent to the Family. We instruct all Charities that a receipt is to be sent to the name of the deceased C/O Aubrey Kirkham Funeral Directors, we do not give out addresses of our families.

We feel that this system, gives security and reassurance to our client’s, and to all the teams here at Aubrey Kirkham Funeral Directors’.
