Create an online memorial in memory of a loved one

Creating an online presence for a lost loved provides a common ground where family and friends can come together honour and remember those who have left.

Usually, a basic online memorial will provide obituary information (profile, funeral details, tributes, family members, resting place), with the option to store contents such as photos, videos and audios. Some online memorial websites provide templates to choose from to create a more personalized look. Custom URL, donation and privacy setting features are also offered by some websites via their premium service.

Advantages of online memorial

  1. Targeted reach-out via sharing link on social media
  2. Low-cost lasting legacy record and anniversary reminders
  3. Able to connect internationally with family and friends
  4. Able to garner online donations and offerings
  5. Able to control privacy
