Give in Memory

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to celebrate their life.

It can be a great comfort to remember a loved one in this meaningful way, and keep their memory alive.

Thank you for thinking of Derby Museums at such a sensitive time and for considering donating in such a special way.

Funeral collections

Often people choose to commemorate the life of a loved one by asking for donations rather than flowers at the funeral or memorial service.

Most funeral directors will help you collect donations in lieu of flowers, handling the administration for you and passing on the donations to us.

Memorial page

Some people like to raise money in a loved one’s name by setting up a memorial page. MuchLoved has made it easy to set up a Memorial Tribute Page that can raise funds for Derby Museums. We are always grateful for these special donations. No matter what size, these gifts will help Derby Museums to continue our work for the benefit of future generations.

We ask anyone who is donating in memory to include their name and address so that we can confirm receipt of their donation. It is also helpful to include the name and address of the deceased to ensure that we can account for all donations made in memory of that individual.
