† how can you tell everybody?
The death of a relative or friend starts a period of great difficulty for everyone involved. In addition to feelings of grief, those closest to the deceased must deal with logistical aspects of the tragedy, including notifications about the funeral, memorial and other gatherings that need to get distributed.
To simplify this burden, we’ve created a dedicated announcement service, where your loved one can occupy a dedicated personal page, that offers all the required announcement details in one beautifully illustrated place, which can be easily shared with family and friends across all digital platforms.
† and acknowledgements
By using our announcement service, you’re not only explaining the details of the funeral to share with friends and family, but you’re also creating a page which is dedicated to their memory. Their dedicated page will never be deleted, allowing a space for you to come back at any time to remember the loved ones who have passed.
We are delighted to have built a page that will illustrate:
We will design a dedicated page to their memory. This will always be available for you to return to at any time.
Full Name, Date of Birth and Date of Death will be beautifully arranged in their own personal page.
We ask that you can offer a recent photo that reflects the warmth of their character.
We have full editing photoshop capability, to ensure whatever the photo, we will maximise it’s effectiveness for their dedicated page.
A placeholder image will be used if a photo cannot be provided.
* Perhaps you want to share lots of photos? – Not a problem, we also have the ability to beautifully design a full gallery on their dedicated page.
Obituary or Message
You can write a short notice that summarises the person or write full obituary that encompasses the character and soul of the person.
Further details of how to write a funeral notice or an obituary can be found here.
However, the basics to include in all messages would be:
- Name of deceased.
- Age at time of death.
- Birth and death dates.
- Schooling or education.
- Accomplishments or biographical sketch.
- Immediate family members still living and deceased.
- Funeral arrangements, date, time and location.

We will obviously support you throughout this process and can assist in the writing of this obituary message.
It is important to advise those in attendance whether you’re open to receiving flowers or whether it is just for the close family members.
The reason for this, is sometimes it can become overwhelming and upsetting if there is not adequate space for the arrangements to be placed.
We will set up a just giving page of your chosen charity in honour of the one who has passed.
The dedicated announcement page will, offer an introduction with hyperlinks to the just giving page. All payments taken will be automatically directed to the chosen charity and a total running amount donated can be monitored and measured. We will keep the Just Giving page open until such time as you advise we take it down.
It is important for those looking to attend that the Location, Date and Time of the Funeral Service, Committal or Interment Service and the Reception (if there is one), is correctly labelled.
We will mark these locations in both list and map form.
Where's the service?
We understand that people may travel from far and wide to be present on this day. We are delighted to also offer an interactive mobile friendly map that show the locations with directions to the funeral service, chapel of rest, interment or committal and the reception so there can be no uncertainty surrounding this important day.
In the following days of a funeral service, we also offer the opportunity to thank friends and family who attended the day, with a fresh notice written on this dedicated page to share with friends and family.
