Memorial Service


Every three years, SUDEP Action organises a Memorial Service in memory of all those who have died from epilepsy. The service is open to people of all faiths or none.  To keep the service inclusive, our supporters help select the readings and music and contribute by reading or providing a musical performance. The service is held in a central location, at St James’s Church, Piccadilly, London.

The service includes a reading of the names of those who have died, (unless they have been read out at a previous service). The name of a loved one can be read out, even if the family are unable to attend. 

Information about the service is sent out in the January of the year it is held.

Our next Memorial Service will be held in 2020. 

To ensure you receive an invitation please ensure you are on our database by contacting our Support team:   Tel: 01235 772852  or email:

The last Memorial Service was held on Saturday 20 May 2017.  The service brought around 165 people together from all over the UK, most of whom stayed for light refreshments afterwards.

A copy of the Order of Service is available to download here.
