Create a lasting memory with the Mountbatten Memory Tree

The memories of your loved one can live on by dedicating a leaf on our memory tree.

At the heart of Mountbatten Hospice, the Mountbatten Memory tree covers the walls at the entrance to the Chapel and is a beautiful and meaningful way to pay tribute to the memory of those you hold dear.

Each colourful enamel leaf on the tree carries a bespoke inscription dedicated to a loved one as a wonderful tribute to their memory.

The tree lives at the entrance to the Chapel - a tranquil place that is available to patients, families, visitors, and staff for quiet thought, meditation, prayer or conversation. In contrast, outside the Chapel is alive with the daily comings and goings of the hospice, with the tree in its midst, proudly bearing the leaves and memories of those who live on in our hearts.

Every leaf that is placed on the memory tree helps Mountbatten to grow. Not only will your leaf serve as a lasting tribute to your loved one; it will also help other families to receive the care and support they need when they need it most.

By dedicating a leaf on the memory tree, you will take away the worry for families caring for a dying loved one, allowing them to focus on making the very best of the time they have left.

Created by local Isle of Wight artist, Lisa Traxler, and using the materials of Isle of Wight company A.J Wells, the shaped enamel and steel design of the tree is a contemporary take on a more traditional memory tree.
