What is an online obituary?

An online obituary or online memorial page is a website page that commemorates someone who has died.

These pages are similar to obituaries or funeral notices in local newspapers, but also offer far more: you can share photos and videos, raise money for the funeral or a charity and keep guests informed about funeral plans easily.

An online obituary page can be a wonderful way to remember someone close to you and celebrate the life you shared together. It’s a special online space where friends, family and the local community can share their memories and thoughts, grieving and healing together.

Is a Beyond online obituary free?

Yes - unlike many online memorial pages or local death notices our service is free and open for anyone to use.

Can I use an obituary page to fundraise for charity?

Absolutely! We have a great partnership with JustGiving to help families raise money for the causes that matter to them.

When you set up an online obituary page, you’ll be given the opportunity to pick a charity for donations. You don’t have to choose one, however - if you don’t need to use our platform for donations, just say so, and the fundraising option won’t appear on the final obituary.

I don’t need to raise funds for the funeral. Can I skip that part?

Absolutely. Just click ‘no’ on that option when you’re setting up the obituary, and we’ll keep that option hidden.

Which charities can I fundraise for?

Any charity that uses JustGiving can be donated to using our fundraising tool.

How do you moderate your online obituaries?

All comments, photos and videos on our online obituaries have a ‘report’ button to help family and friends flag up any issues. Once a report is made, our team will act swiftly to resolve the problem.
