Give a gift in memory
Giving a gift in memory is a touching way to remember someone special by honouring their life and supporting a cause that was important to them.
All donations we receive allow us to care for more elderly veterans and provide greater rehabilitation and support for the veterans of today.
There are a number of ways your loved one can be remembered detailed below. For each gift received in memory, we will add your loved one’s name and the date they passed away to our Never Forget Book of Remembrance, on permanent display at our Head Office. Visitors are very welcome to come and visit the Book at:
The Royal British Legion
199 Borough High Street
London SE1 1AA
Office hours: 9am–5pm
No appointment is necessary.
Online donation form
Our online donation form is a quick and easy way to make a special gift in your loved one's memory.
By post OR PHONE
You can send a cheque, payable to The Royal British Legion, to:
Never Forget Memorial Donations
The Royal British Legion
Melksham SN12 7BR
Or make a donation over the phone where we accept credit or debit card donations. Please call our Supporter Care Team on 0333 011 4500.
Funeral collection envelopes
We also offer collection envelopes for friends and families to pay tribute at a loved one's funeral. Donating in memory is a special gift that allows their memory to be honoured.
Family and friends can either hand envelopes to you or send them directly to us. To request Never Forget Collection envelopes please call our Supporter Care Team on 0333 011 4500 or email email@example.com.
Display Funeral Collection leaflets
The Legion works very closely with Funeral Directors who pass many donations to us on behalf of families who have lost loved ones and request donations rather than floral tributes at the funeral.
If you run a funeral business and would like to display our collection envelopes of leaflets please click here to contact us.
Gifts in celebration envelopes
For any questions or further information get in touch with Leesa Mathiesen at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 3053 7031.
