Book of Remembrance

Welcome to our online Book of Remembrance where we pay tribute to those who have gone before us, as a lasting tribute to their generosity and the impact this has had on the thousands of people across Derbyshire affected by sight loss.

If you have recently sent gifts in memory of a loved one, or if we have received a gift in their Will, we will contact you to ask if you would like their name to be listed on this page. There are many people who have given to us in the past who we would also like to remember. If you would like us to list your friend or relative who left us a legacy or had gifts made in memory of them in the past please contact us.

You may also wish your loved one to be remembered in our head office Book of Remembrance, where we are happy to include photos, memories and tributes. Please contact us.

All Is Well (Henry Scott Holland)

Death is nothing to fear,
I have only slipped away into the next room, I am I, and you are you,
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still,
Call me by my old familiar name, Speak to me in the same easy way which you always did,
Put no difference into your tone;
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect, without the shadow of a ghost on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was; there is absolutely unbroken continuity,
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am just waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.

All is well.
