Obituary

Yes – we have a few options for you to share pictures of your loved one. First, pick a header and a profile picture. Then you can move on to the Photo Gallery where you and guests can upload as many memories as you wish.

Once you've published the obituary, a unique link will be generated. From there, you can share the link with family and friends through email, Whatsapp, etc. You can also click on the social media buttons to post directly on the channel of your choice.

Upon your request, an advisor can submit your obituary to local and national newspapers of your choosing (price will be quoted to you).

100% of contributions go to charity or the bereaved family. We do not take a fee.

In most cases, personal donations qualify as personal gifts and are not taxed as income in the U.S. However, in some case, the donations may be taxable, so it’s a good idea to consult with a tax professional if you aren’t sure.

About Memoria

4 answers

Our advisors support you throughout the entire planning of the funeral, and beyond. They both give valuable advice and take care of all the logistical aspects of the funeral. Examples include booking a priest, church, musician – whatever you may need. All of our advisors are experienced professionals with backgrounds in a variety of fields, including licensed social workers, funeral directors, hospice nurses, and more, all of whom are trained to support matters related to the loss of a loved one.

While your advisor can assist with general guidance and information, they are not legal professionals, and cannot provide you with specific legal or financial advice.

If you need specific legal or financial advice, our friends at Trust & Will will be happy to help.

We have a different business model to traditional funeral homes. By offering services that can be arranged online or over the phone, we don’t have the same high overheads. We don’t require expensive physical locations to provide a high-quality service. We have used technology to automate many manual processes, which allows us to pass on those savings to our customers.

We'll start by asking you a few easy–to–answer questions about your specific circumstances. Your answers will generate a custom plan: all the steps you and your family should tackle, laid out by urgency and category. Tap on each step to get all the information and guidance you need to complete it, check off steps that are completed or hide them from the timeline, add and save information for each, and even delegate any steps to your advisor if you don't feel like doing it yourself.

For anything you delegate to your advisor, you will be updated within the platform about options available to you, price and any other details you wish for.

We've also put together a curated marketplace for you where you can find all the items you possibly need to craft a unique farewell – from bronze caskets, tropical themed flowers, to cremation necklaces to remember your loved one. We make sure you keep every hard–earned dollar by providing you quality services and products at the best possible price.

It's 2022, and you may not want for every family member and friend to bring flowers – why not communicate that you'd rather wish for donations to be made at a certain charity or even made to your Venmo account to help cover funeral expenses. All of this is possible through our online customizable obituary where you can also share memories and service details with guests.

Memoria is the end-to-end bereavement platform for families. With personalized guidance, on-demand planning, and curated marketplace, families can arrange a unique farewell that saves time, costs and headspace.

  • Personalized guidance – forget about generic checklists, we offer guidance based on your unique circumstances such as religion, type of desired burial and more.

  • On-demand support – grief affects us all differently; chose to be hands on or delegate all logistics to your dedicated advisor.

  • Intelligent tools – keep track of progress, collaborate with relatives, and keep all your important information in one place.
