Funeral Zone Obituaries
Everything you need to know about Funeral Zone’s online obituary service
Last updated: 5 October 2017
Funeral Zone Obituaries are a free service, provided through your funeral director, which allows you to share memories of your loved one online.
If your funeral director is one of the many working with Funeral Zone, you will be able to access a dedicated obituary page where mourners can write messages, share photos or light virtual candles to show they are thinking of your loved one.
The advantage to a Funeral Zone Obituary is that they are fully moderated and completely secure, unlike social media sites such as Facebook. This means friends and family can safely and securely leave lasting tributes to their loved one online.
The Donation Tool
The Funeral Zone Obituary also allows you to raise money for a charity of your choice in memory of your loved one.
Funeral Zone’s partnership with JustGiving makes the process of donating money streamlined and easy to understand, and enables Gift Aid of 25% to be added to donations.
In this way Funeral Zone Obituaries allow the bereaved to easily direct mourners to the specific charities they would like donations to be made to and provide them with a direct link to make a payment online. You can see the total amount raised in the top right-hand corner of the obituary page.
The Funeral Organiser
Integrated with the Funeral Zone Obituary is the Funeral Organiser. This handy tool helps the bereaved make sense of all the administrative tasks involved in saying farewell to a loved one, with a simple, easy-to-read checklist.
The organiser also lets you keep track of who has confirmed their attendance at the funeral. The bereaved can announce funeral details on the online obituary page, making it easy for all mourners to find out the time and place, and mourners can confirm they will be attending. They can also access Google Maps straight from the obituary page, making finding the funeral easy and stress-free.
Funeral Zone Memorial Book
The Funeral Zone Memorial Book turns your loved one’s online obituary into a high-quality book with up to 200 gloss-finished pages of condolences, candles and photos. You can also add photos and highlight your favourite messages via the Memorial Book editor before confirming the order. Within 14 days you will receive a bespoke Memorial Book, delivered in a presentation box.
