No, this is a free in memory service offered by the Hospice. We believe that it is important to keep the memory of your loved one alive, and feel that everyone should have this opportunity to share their photos and messages in tribute.

How long will my tribute fund be set up for?
You can keep your loved ones tribute fund open for as long as you want. If you would like to trial it privately first that is also possible each tribute can be tailor made according to how you would like to remember your loved one.
