Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use Memorial?

Memorial is the best way to let the public know of your loved one’s passing. We are not a memorial or tributes site. Think of it as the new alternative to the traditional means of posting an obituary. It’s more personal, less expensive and lasts longer than posting in a local newspaper. Best of all, Memorial is the easiest way to share with anyone, anywhere. Get Started

How do I create an obituary?

You don’t have to be a great author, poet or have years of experience to create a beautiful and thoughtful obituary. Using the Memorial AuthorTM, creating an obituary is actually pretty simple. Just click the “Create Now” link below and we’ll walk you through the process. Get Started

What happens after I create an obituary?

After you create the obituary it will be viewable on our website for you to share with friends and family. We’ll supply you with a link that you can easily copy and paste into an email or any social network like Twitter or Facebook. You can even go back and edit the obituary before you send it. Mistakes can never be erased when posting obituaries in a local newspaper.

Can people print out the obituary?

They sure can. After you create the obituary, you can simply click “print” on your web browser. We’ve designed our pages so that the Memorial opens up a nicely formatted document that includes all of the details about the obituary and services. This document can be printed instantly for those on the go or to post somewhere for public viewing. You can even share this document via email with other publications just in case you want to also post the obituary in a local newspaper or magazine.

How long will the obituary stay online?

Obituaries stay on Memorial for the life of the website. As long as we’re around so is the obituary you created. There is also never a need to upgrade your listing or pay an extra fee in order to keep the obituary active. Loved ones, family members and friends will always be able to view the obituary unlike those placed in the local newspaper or other tribute websites. Those only last a day or two and then the newspaper is simply thrown away and a tribute site will tell you need to give them more money to keep the tribute live.

How much does Memorial cost?

Memorial has a low, one-time fee of $30. Out of all of the expenses that you’ll be faced with during this most difficult time, we feel that you shouldn’t have to pay exorbitant fees in order to notify your family and friends of your loss.

What will the charge look like on my credit card statement?

Great question. When you make a purchase on Memorial you will see “Memorial” on your bank statement.

I'm a funeral home. Does Memorial offer a program I can use for all of my obituaries?

Yes we do. You can use Memorial on behalf of your clients by offering us as part of your services. Please contact us here for more information:
