Users are provided with their own unique website where they can easily add and display a whole range of information and memorabilia including stories, messages of condolence, pictures, music and even video clips.All websites are designed to allow people to remember in private if they wish, so they are not initially made public or profiled anywhere on the internet. It is left to you to decide whether you wish to allow public access and whether or not other people are allowed to contribute to your site.

At any stage you can then upgrade, free of charge, to keep your memorial website hosted online for 10 years.
