Sharing unique memories and making donations
22 Aug 2022

Sharing memories of a loved one is an integral part of the grieving process and one which can bring a great deal of comfort to families.

It is good to talk about and remember a loved one - whether that be from a family perspective or from that of a close friend or acquaintance. Everybody has their own specific memories to share and the mosaic of these thoughts brought together in one place provides a reassurance that the deceased will always be remembered by those who knew them.

An increasingly popular way of doing this is by creating an online page, or special memorial website, where people can upload their personal memories, messages, photos, add music and light candles - all of which can be viewed and cherished by the family and other friends. 

A fitting tribute

WRR Pugh & Son is partnering with MuchLoved, the online tribute charity, in offering this service to bereaved families. Anyone wishing to upload their tribute simply needs to set up an account and then log in via their username and password to post their particular memory or make a donation.

The beauty is that it is all there in a shared space where friends can upload their own personal tributes without the perceived fear of intruding directly into the family’s grief.

Positive feedback

Feedback on this service has been extremely positive and it is an excellent way for families to view personalised tributes which may otherwise go unseen. It is just another way in which we are helping bereaved families and the deceased in meeting their wishes. This also includes personalising the funeral service through:

  • Music.
  • Flowers.
  • Choice of coffin.
  • Variety of hearse.
  • Dress code.

We work closely with families throughout to ensure their loved ones get the funeral they have asked for and we are completely flexible in customising a funeral to meet these requirements. This includes discussing any request that may seem out of the ordinary - no request is ever too unusual for us to consider.
