Digital technology has made a lot of unexpected things become a possibility, including attending a funeral from the other side of the world.
Live-streaming has become increasingly popular, especially since COVID-19 arrived, not simply as a means to watch the funeral, but as a way of allowing friends and family to bear witness and pay their final respects in real time, when it is not possible to be there in person.
Here at Aubrey Kirkham Funeral Directors, we have found this service has become increasingly popular when helping bereaved families with funeral planning, and we are pleased to be able to offer live streaming of funeral services from both the Emstrey and Telford crematoriums, meaning family and friends unable to attend the funeral on the day can still view the service at the time it is taking place
Alternatively, it is also possible to order a 28-day webcast, allowing for the service to be viewed online for up to 28 days after it takes place, for friends and family members who may be unavailable on the day in question, but who still wish to feel part of the ceremony.
Live streaming and recording of a funeral service at other venues is also possible, and we work closely with a number of suppliers that offer a high quality and professional streaming service – please contact us if you would like more information on this.
Slideshow, Tribute Photo and keepsake of visual tributes
Other options available to our families are the creation of personalised slideshows, or tribute photos, either provided by themselves, or designed by our partners Obitus for the Emstrey and Telford Crematoria, and which would then be shown during the service.
These tributes can also be ordered as a USB/DVD to keep to watch again, after the service.
Understandably, for Live streaming to be possible, a good internet connection and specialist equipment to capture the sound and video feed are a must, and these additional options are available to be arranged as part of the outstanding funeral service which Aubrey Kirkham Funeral Directors are able to provide.
