Ways that you can support your local charity- Lambeth Mencap
The phrase ‘In lieu of flowers’ does not mean that there will be no flowers at a funeral; rather it means the family have decided to limit the floral tributes to immediate family only and others, if they wish, are invited to make a donation to a charity.
Asking your family and friends to make donations to Lambeth Mencap instead of flowers is a wonderful way to help make a difference to the lives of Adults with Learning Disabilities.
Such gifts can be encouraged in a funeral notice using the phrase.
