Make a dedication in memory of a loved one.

Memory Tree

Remember a loved one

The Rennie Grove Peace Memory Trees are located along the walkway to our Inpatient Unit at Peace Hospice in Watford. The trees are a place where you can keep a leaf or poppy engraved in dedication to the memory of a loved one.

Every leaf and poppy is a poignant tribute to somebody loved and remembered. Every gift will help fund care for Rennie Grove Peace patients in the future.

Rennie Grove Peace provides specialist care for people with life-limiting illnesses and those around them. From diagnosis onward, we give support to help improve quality of life. Our services are provided free of charge.

Your leaf or poppy is inscribed and placed on the tree as a tribute to someone you want to remember and celebrate.  When you make a dedication in memory of your loved one, you give someone else the gift of care that they urgently need.

Andres Cuenca-Torres 1972 - 2023“Our memory leaf is a way for us to remember Andres and his time at the hospice. Although a time of great sadness, the kindness and care given kept him safe and pain-free in our precious final weeks with him.”

Make a dedication in Memory


You can choose from leaves of Copper Beech, Silver Birch or Autumn Gold.  We also offer a limited number of poppies with space for an expanded dedication.

If you make a one-off payment, your leaf or poppy will remain in place for one year. At the end of your year, you can either renew your dedication or we will send it back to you to keep.

If you make a monthly payment, your leaf or poppy will remain for as long as you choose to continue with your payment. However, if you decide to cancel your direct debit or contact us asking to conclude your dedication, we will return it to you.
