It is not always easy to notify people of the death of a person as many people have numerous friends and acquaintances, which the close relatives may not be aware of. Death notices can be placed in a local or National newspaper which can give information about the funeral details and any special requests regarding floral tributes or donations to a charity. Most newspapers also place the death notice in an online format so that people from out of the area can access the notice remotely. People can also leave messages on the online page.
Nowadays people may use Facebook or Twitter to inform people of a death and this can be a useful tool for people to send their condolences and messages of support to the family.
If the funeral is to take place at a local church they may be able to print the information for the congregation or make an announcement beforehand.
Create a memorial website to remember, cherish and commemorate
M Coghlan Ltd have come together with the bereavement charity MuchLoved to offer you the ability to create your own website dedicated to a loved one who has died.
Why create a memorial site?
More and more people are now using the internet as a means of commemoration and a Memorial Website can help you to express, keep and display valuable personal memories and thoughts about your loved one.
On a Memorial Website you can express your feelings about your loved one not just in words but in pictures, music and even video. You can also use your site to enable family and friends, however far away they live, to send their thoughts and to contribute as well, maybe by adding a lovely picture you’ve never seen or a special story you’ve never heard.
Supporting each other in grief
A memorial website enables friends and family to come together, not only in sharing memories and thoughts, but in supporting each other during the long and painful grieving process. Some people will also use their site to pass on information to family & friends about the funeral and later on anniversaries and other important occasions. A growing number are being used to help raise money for good causes in memory of their loved one.
In addition, memorial websites can be kept online indefinitely, meaning that you can create a lasting record and legacy to be kept in perpetuity for family and future generations to see.
How to create your tribute site
In partnership with the online memorial charity MuchLoved you can now easily create your own tribute web pages in memory of a loved one who is sadly and greatly missed. As your own special tribute, these web pages can become a place of comfort to visit at any time or place, in order to help you remember and reflect.
They are very easy to set up in just a matter of a few minutes and you can update and add to them whenever you want over time. Whilst they allow the people affected by bereavement to share their feelings of sadness and loss, they also provide a place with which to remember the joy that the person gave to them all.
MuchLoved is a bereavement charity that hosts many thousands of memorial websites in memory of loved ones. Please feel free to find out more about the background to MuchLoved and we hope that you will consider joining in this very positive initiative by visiting MuchLoved and creating your own special memorial website.
