Please have your email confirmation to hand to show the stewards to collect your dedication marker from the chalet when the garden re-opens this winter.

Unable to visit the garden?

You can also choose for one of our garden stewards to handwrite your dedication and place it in the garden on your behalf when the garden re-opens.

As the garden contains over 25,000 dedicated roses, we will be unable to locate your individual dedication if you choose for our stewards to write and place your dedication marker on your behalf.

If you would like to know exactly where your dedicated rose is located within the garden, we recommend writing your dedication message yourself when you visit.

A garden of remembrance

After the loss of their friend, the late production designer Michael Howells, Royal Marsden Cancer Charity Trustee and designer Anya Hindmarch CBE, and fashion writer Camilla Morton, wanted to find an inspiring way to remember those we have lost. Together, they created the Ever After Garden which first lit up Grosvenor Square in 2019.

“The Ever After Garden was born out of the need to pay tribute to those we have lost during the year. It was an idea originally conceived with Camilla Morton in memory of Michael Howells and is named after the film for which he designed the sets. However this garden should be personal to everyone. For me, it is also in memory of my Aunt Elizabeth Hindmarch."

"My wish is for this to be a place to reflect at Christmas in amongst all the festive cheer, and in doing so raise money for the incredible institution that is The Royal Marsden."
