Life for a Life

The Life for a Life scheme involves planting a memorial tree or trees, installing memorial benches and memorial plaques to commemorate loved ones.

The scheme has been specifically designed to benefit individuals and families who are grieving over the loss of a loved one, regardless of their age, status or religious beliefs.

We have donated land in Somerset to create three memorial forests which will in turn help benefit St Margaret’s Somerset Hospices in Taunton and Yeovil.

The picturesque settings of Clatworthy, Hawkridge and Sutton Bingham reservoirs provide beautiful sites for those wishing both to plant a living memorial to someone they have lost and to contribute to the conservation of wildlife. A new site is also planned for Durleigh which will open in the spring.

Every tree has its own individual plaque and name plate and is recorded as an individual plot number in the Life for a Life record register. A proportion of the money generated by the scheme will go to the hospices. Life for a Life has also established memorial gardens in north east England. The scheme can be contacted on 0161 624 2299.
