A special note about our supporters
We have been helped immeasurably by the many individuals and organisations who have advised, supported and promoted us since MuchLoved was created.
This is our chance to thank you publicly for all your efforts. We really appreciate your support and we are indebted to you for your help and in particular your faith during the early development of the service.
As well as those that have given generous financial assistance we appreciate the long term unfailing support of the members of the ‘Friends of MuchLoved’. You have helped guide our work and direction and we hope you agree that the outcome is something you should be proud of.
Thank you to all the businesses that help us to ensure that we are able to provide the Tribute service completely free of charge, so that all bereaved people can benefit regardless of their financial position.

Our Community Moderators
MuchLoved ran an online community in the first few years after launching which was only able to run as the result of a significant input of time and effort by a loyal team of moderators who worked to ensure that all new visitors were welcomed and that members received the support and feedback that they needed in very difficult times. On behalf of all the MuchLoved Team and the Trustees, we can’t thank you enough for your support and dedication to the community.
