Legacies & In Memory

Build a lasting legacy

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:21


Bristol Cathedral is a special place to so many; a place to seek peace during difficult times, share special occasions with loved ones or sing with friends. 

It means different things to everyone but is a constant in many people’s lives. This magnificent building has stood for over 900 years and we hope it will always be there to seek prayer, find tranquillity and community in the heart of the city.

Gifts through legacies and in memoriam, supports the core of Cathedral life, allowing it to live on.

Donations in memory

Donating in memory can be a fitting tribute for a friend, colleague or loved one. Whether they are part of the Cathedral community, volunteer, or hold a special memory at the Cathedral. 

Making a donation in memory can be a thoughtful way to remember someone and can be made towards a particular fund, as a one-off, or regular donation to mark a special date.
