Mary Ellen T.N. Burgess memorial grove
April 1923 March 2009

Mary Ellen T.N. Burgess grove

In a garden, gently sleeping

Where small birds visit every day

Flowers and the roses, on the breeze gently sway

There lies a very special person

That we love and miss each passing day

"Ellen" as she was known to all, sadly passed away in March.

She completed an eventful life and touched many people on her travels who will all feel the loss of this bright cheerful spirit. There are few words that can describe such a happy and caring soul but it would be fair to say the day was always brighter in her presence.

In memory of a loving wife, mother and grandmother.

Add trees to this grove

In a Caledonian Forest we remember one so dear with a tree for us to look on and remember every year.

Donated by K.W. Burgess, and James King

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
