With the help of our partners Production Bureau and MuchLoved we are offering live streaming, the addition of an external audio system together with an online tribute page.
Live Streaming & Recording
There are occasions when distance, health or other circumstances can stop some family and friends from attending a funeral to say goodbye and pay their respects. Live streaming a funeral allows those who are unable to attend the opportunity to participate, say goodbye and watch the funeral for themselves in real time, over the internet from anywhere in the world.
As we continue to adapt our lives to the coronavirus situation, the guidance is that attendance at funeral services be limited to the closest family members to avoid large gatherings that may exacerbate the spread of the virus. Physical separation is now more important than ever and to protect our loved ones who are at risk.
We are currently using Zoom to connect families together during the current social distancing measures due to COVID-19. Zoom allows your family to view the service of your loved one who has sadly passed away. Although live streaming our moment to say goodbye feels unfamiliar and maybe a little impersonal, the technology is in place and provides a risk-free alternative to large social gatherings.
For those people attending a funeral, the addition of our external audio system will allow you to be part of the funeral service whilst being socially distant outside given that seating is limited to 20 people in the Cedar hall.
We are doing everything we can during this difficult time to keep families connected and able to say goodbye to the people they love.
Partnering with the online MuchLoved Charitable Trust we offer a unique virtual tribute to your loved one. The MuchLoved tribute service is quick and simple to set up and use. It provides you with the very best way to record and share your memories and stories. You can add pictures, music and video, as well as light virtual candles to create a truly special and unique tribute site. Comprehensive privacy and invitation settings enable you to keep complete control over both access and display. It is optimised for desktop, tablet and smartphone devices and you can change anything on your tribute instantly through your own personal control settings.
Your tribute will also have the ability to process donations and collect Gift Aid for UK charities if your are looking to fundraise for a chosen cause in response to the death of a loved one. There are also additional features to enable you to record ongoing events and activities carried out in their memory.
The optional Funeral Announcement facility provides an ideal way to communicate funeral information to guests and collect funeral donations with MuchLoved being awarded the Best Online Bereavement Resource at the Good Funeral Awards in both 2014 and 2016.
