Frequently Asked Questions
What's an online funeral guest book?
An online funeral guest book is essentially a memorial website—a place to collect people's memories and condolences on a website. Anyone can visit a memorial website at any time and share their photos, stories, videos and condolences, even if they aren't able to attend the funeral in-person. These posts then live on the website and are easy for anyone to revisit.
Why should you have an online funeral guest book?
Many people are now choosing to use memorial websites as online funeral guest books instead of having physical guestbooks for several reasons. Memorial websites allow anyone to contribute online condolences, even if they can't make it to the funeral. They also make it easy to upload and share photos, which is much harder in a physical book. Lastly, they're easy for anyone to access at any time in the future, meaning everyone is able to revisit fond memories of your loved one.
