A unique website address for your online memorial site.
When you create your online memorial, you will be asked to choose a unique website address for it so that you can reach it directly by typing the memorial address into your address bar. The address can also be given to friends and family so that they too can access it directly. An example of a memorial address would be http://john-smith.remembered-forever.org.
Personal Background section where you can tell your loved one’s life story
In this section you can tell the story of your loved one’s life. You may want to express your feelings on their passing and perhaps also use it to notify friends and family of any memorial services taking place.
A place for yourself and others to light virtual memorial candles.
Visitors of your online memorial will be able to light a virtual candle in remembrance of your loved one and with it they may choose to leave a short message dedicated to the deceased.
A place for yourself and others to leave tributes and condolences.
If visitors to your memorial wish to leave a longer message of condolence, or a tribute to your loved one then they may choose to do so in the tributes and condolences section. Here they can write a message of sympathy to the creator of the memorial or leave a tribute message dedicated to the deceased.
Upload photographs of your loved one into your own personal album.
There will be a section within your online memorial where you will be able to upload photographs of your loved one. You can also add captions to the pictures so that you have an online photo album.
Upload video clips of your loved one.
Your online memorial will contain a page called “Audio and Video”. Here, you can upload home videos of your loved one and some of their favourite songs or music. This allows you to preserve their memory through video and audio clips for future generations.
Upload audio clips, such as your loved one’s favourite song.
Audio clips will be uploaded to the same area as video clips. Audio clips can be things like voice clips of your loved one talking, or perhaps their favourite pieces of music or songs. It allows you to portray a little bit of their personality and taste.
Please note: You must own the copyright to any audio which you upload.
Create a timeline of events in your loved one’s life.
You can add as many dates as you like onto your loved one’s timeline. It can feature big life events such as weddings, birthdays and holidays as well as any other event you would like to remember. You can also add pictures onto the timeline to show your loved one at each different stage in their life.
Easy to use editing system allowing you to add material at any time.
Once you have created your initial memorial, you will then be able to edit it and add things to it at any time you like. All you have to do is log on with your user name and password and you will be able to add more photos, text, videos, audio clips, timeline events and memories.
Customized design and background music.
You can change the design of your memorial at any time by choosing a different template. You can also upload music which will play in the background when you (or any visitors) are viewing the online memorial. If you wish to change this background music at any time then you may do so.
A place for yourself and others to leave memories of the deceased.
There will be a section on your memorial where yourself and others can leave messages containing memories of your loved one. Many people like this feature as it allows them to find out memories from others which they may not have previously known about, so that even after the loss of your loved one, you can still learn new things about their life.
Send a message to friends and family notifying them of your memorial.
You can enter various email addresses into the notify friends and family section and an automated email will be sent out to them, telling them that you have created an online memorial. This means that they can also visit the site and make their own contribution through candles, tributes and memories.
Option to password protect your memorial, keeping it private from the public.
Although many find it beneficial to share their memorial, and the story of their loved ones’ life with the public, others may prefer to keep it private. You will be given the option to do this when you have created your memorial so that to view the site you will have to type in a password (which you make up). This password can then be given to as many, or as few people as you wish, so that they too can access the memorial.
Support a charity
When you pay for everlasting hosting for your online memorial, 5% of the fee will be given to charity. Half of this money will be donated to a large charity, and the other half will be donated to a smaller charity, such as a personal trust fund set up in somebody?s name. Remembered Forever donates this money to charity every quarter.
