Create a lasting memory by dedicating a leaf on the Mountbatten Memory Tree at Mountbatten Hospice. Each colourful enamel leaf has its own special meaning and you can choose which colour you like and write your own inscription, which will be printed on the leaf as a wonderful tribute to your loved one’s memory. When your leaf is ready you can place it on the tree, wherever feels right to you.

At the heart of Mountbatten Hospice, the Mountbatten Memory tree covers the walls 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.

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. 

Thank you to our friends at Hydromar for kindly donating the leaves for the memory tree. Each leaf is personalised and dedicated in memory of a loved one.
