A quick guide

What is an Online Condolence Book ?

An Online Condolence Book or Online Book of Condolence is a webpage on which relatives, friends and colleagues may record their condolences after the death of a family member or after a great tragedy affects the wider community. They may also be referred to as Online Remembrance Books or Online Memory Books.

Traditionally condolence books are usually provided during  a funeral for mourners to leave their messages or maybe placed in public places for members of the general public to use. When closed, the books are usually given to the relatives of the deceased or archived. Reviewing a condolence book may help grieving relatives come to terms with the reality of their loss.

Digital or Online Condolence Books can now be placed on the Internet so people may write their thoughts on-line.

Our Online Condolence Books can be viewed on mobile, tablet or desktop devices and are a modern alternative to a printed book.

Messages of condolence can be added using either of the following four methods textual, audio, video or handwritten and photoed.

It is not necessary to create an account at Remembrance Book to leave a message.

Messages can also include photos or videos uploaded with the message.

Creating an Online Condolence Book requires the owner of the book to register and create an account with Remembrance Book  (this is free).

An Online Condolence Book can be edited and changed at any time only by the registered owner. Editing by anyone other than the registered owner is not allowed.

During the current COVID-19 pandemic our Online Condolence Books can be useful as a safe socially distanced way to collect memories and condolences from friends, colleagues and family worldwide.

Once an Online Condolence Book is complete it can optionally be ordered as a hardcopy printed book.

See below for the list of features of our Online Condolence Books.
