Memorial Book

Submit a Child's Name to be Placed in Our Memorial Book!

Every year since the 1996 national conference in Long Beach, California, The Compassionate Friends Memory Book has traveled across the country to each national conference where it is prominently displayed as a tribute to the children of our many compassionate friends. Names are added at each conference and, as the conference ends, the Memory Book, which now has several volumes, carefully travels back to our National Office where the names of children continue to be added throughout the year. Since the first Memory Book was introduced, the names of thousands of children have been added and we'd like to include your child, sibling, grandchild, or loved one as a tribute from The Compassionate Friends.

Now, by filling out a simple form here on The Compassionate Friends national website you can have a beloved child's name added to the Memory Book. We're asking for your name and address on the form, as we want to send you a remembrance card on birth and death anniversaries (sorry, we're only able to send remembrance cards to U.S. addresses). It's a small way of telling you how much we care! When you attend a TCF national conference in the future, you may use the Memory Book indexes to locate the name of the child you submit here. Please fill out a separate form for each child whose name you wish us to add. You will receive an e-mail acknowledgment that the form and information has been received. If you wish to submit information on a child from a country outside the United States to be added to the Memory Book or if you have any questions, please send the child's information or write us at
