FAMILIES can celebrate the life of a loved one with a new service being offered by the Examiner.

A remembrance website allows people to open a unique Book of Remembrance and leave a message to commemorate a departed loved one.

Viewers can also light a candle in memory, send a virtual sympathy card or print the book as a keepsake.

It can also be used following funerals to record messages for family and friends.

Marcia Kelly, the Examiner’s customer services manager said: “The site was launched on Monday, but is already proving a very popular way for people to remember their loved one online as well as in print.

“The website gives people the opportunity to share their fondest memories with family, friends or those further afield.”

When people book a death notice in the Examiner they will be given a unique reference number to set up the Book of Remembrance.

The service also gives people information about funeral directors, florists and words of comfort which they can use in either in the book or a memoriam.

Phone 0151 472 2423 or email: remembrance@examiner.co.uk or visit the Examiner’s offices in Queen Street South.
