MuchLoved launches new Tribute service for Funeral Directors

MuchLoved, the online bereavement charity, is encouraging funeral directors to join its new online Tribute Service. ‘Funeral Giving’ offers bereaved families and friends a special and sensitive way of sending condolences and sharing memories, whilst also offering funeral directors a simpler, more efficient method of collecting in memory funeral donations.

Funeral directors will be able to offer their clients the opportunity to create beautiful, personal online memorials, enabling them to express their grief and pay lasting tribute to their loved ones. Tributes can be set up easily by the funeral director on behalf of clients, or by the clients themselves, who can also use their site to collect in memory donations for charity. MuchLoved hosts the tribute websites and processes all the online donations (including gift aid) and funeral directors will be able to add any offline donations made before, at or after the funeral.

Using their experience of working with over 100 charities, MuchLoved has developed Funeral Giving specifically for the funeral organisation market. Funeral directors can create a simple link from their own website to MuchLoved’s, which their clients can follow in order to set up their tributes. Funeral organisations wishing to stand out from the crowd can become ‘Optimum’ partners for an annual subscription of £600 + VAT per year. These partners receive a bespoke micro-site, featuring their logo, branding and key messages. They can also display their clients’ tributes in a fully-branded ‘Remembrance Garden’, tailored to fit in with the design and feel of their company’s website.

Iain Steel, of Funeral Directors Richard Steel & Partners, says ‘We have found that our families really appreciate the MuchLoved online tribute to help remember their loved ones, as it includes the options of adding photos, thoughts, lighting a candle and personalising it to their own individual wishes. Being able to use the tribute as a place for accepting online in memoriam donations is very convenient for everyone and many of our clients have collected significant amounts for local charities’.

All funeral organisations are encouraged to become a MuchLoved Funeral Giving partner so that their clients can benefit from the additional bereavement support that setting up a tribute provides, as well as the opportunity to collect donations on behalf of a chosen charity, over the short or longer term.

Note to editors:
MuchLoved is the online memorial charity offering support to anyone who has been bereaved. We’re proud to host 25,000 tribute websites, increasing numbers of which are being used by bereaved families and friends to raise in memory donations for charity. To date, we have helped over 100 charity partners raise a collective total of over £3 million. A registered charity since 2007, MuchLoved is run by a board of Trustees who are supported by an enthusiastic team that carry out day to day support work and product development.

Special Offer
The MuchLoved team will be at Stand X20, Hall 2 of the National Funeral Exhibition, 7th-9th June 2013. To coincide with this and to celebrate the launch of Funeral Giving, MuchLoved is offering half-price subscriptions (£300 instead of £600 for the first year) to funeral directors and other memorial organisations who become new Funeral Giving Optimum partners before 9th June.
