There is no facility for keeping flowers fresh at the crematorium so floral tributes should be brought on the day. If you prefer to donate to charity, we would like Boultham Park House, the care home where Dad spent his last days, to benefit. To this end, a collection box will be placed inside the entrance of the crematorium. Should you be unable to attend but still wish to donate please send cheques made out to “Boultham Park House” to 12 Greenbank Drive, Lincoln, LN6 7LQ. Thank you.
