How can I create an online memorial page?
To create an online memorial page simply click here and follow the details of the person you wish to create a page for.
Is this page for me?
Normally a page will be created to honour and remember someone else. Whilst you are the admin of the page when you create it, the page doesn’t need to be for you and it’ll have the name of the person you wish to pay tribute to.
However, If you wish to be the admin of your own page and collect all the memories in one place before you pass away the site will allow you to do it and will give you the same functionalities as if you create it for someone else.
How long does a page take to be created?
Creating an online memorial page is simple and will take you between 10-15 minutes. We have made the process as simple as possible and created forms where you can fill the required information to start your free page.
Do I need any computer programming experience?
You don’t need programming experience to create a page. All the process is designed to make the journey as simple as possible for you.

Gifts & flowers
What gifts can I send to someone who is grieving?
When words are hard to find a sympathy gift it’s a lovely gesture to show support in a difficult moment. At Viva Memory you have the option to send sympathy gifts and flowers in memory of someone special. We have curated a list of the best partners and you will be able to find them in the ‘Gifts & flowers’ section of every memorial page.
From there you’ll be able to access their products and send them to the address provided by the page admin.
We are constantly working on expanding our list of suppliers to offer you a variety of options to pay tribute to your loved ones in your preferred way.
I want to pay tribute to a loved one – but social media doesn’t seem like the right place. What can I do?
We understand that losing a loved one is hard and they deserve a private place to be honoured and remembered. By creating a free memorial page you can treasure all those memories and share with your community to pay tribute in your own way to those that have passed away.
Within the page, the Memory box section is designed to treasure all the memories of your loved ones. There, you will be able to upload pictures, videos and post messages to pay tribute and keep the memories alive.
Can I organise my funeral in Viva Memory?
At Viva Memory we offer guidance through the process, however, we are not a page where you can book and pay for a funeral. Instead, we offer the option to share all the funeral details with your friends and family and manage your guest list.
We know how hard it is to lose a loved one, so our aim is to help you centralise all the information in one place, making it easier to share with others and share all the necessary details in a simple way.
I’m planning a funeral – what do I need to do?
First of all you need to contact your chosen funeral directors and let them guide you through the process. Once all your details are confirmed, you can create a free online memorial page to create a funeral notice, share all the details with your friends and family and manage your guestlist all in one place.
I am/ a loved one is struggling with grief – what support is available?
We want to help you and guide you through grief, so we have created our grief support resources where you will find articles that will guide you and support you through grief. In there you will find multiple types of articles, from templates to help you write obituaries to lists of funeral songs and guides on what to do when someone dies.
I want to fundraise in memory of a loved one – what can I do?
Fundraising in memory of a loved one is an excellent way to pay tribute and give back to a cause that was close to your loved one heart. You can set up fundraising to help with the funeral costs, to pay tribute to a loved one by setting up an event or simply to give to the charity of your choice.
When you create your free online memorial page you’ll be given the option to customise your fundraising section where you can set up your goal, chose the type of fundraising and select from our list of charity partners or add the charity of your choice.
