Main Types of Notices on
Have you ever wondered what the difference between a funeral/death notice and a memoriam is? What about an acknowledgement?

We publish many different types of notices on our site, and it can sometimes be difficult to know what the different notices are for.

Death/Funeral Notice

A death or funeral notice is used to announce the passing of a loved one, and to share funeral details with family and friends.

Funeral notices often include the date of death, some details of the family and the funeral details.

Some notices that appear under the "Deaths" section are support notices from family and friends. These do not usually include details of the funeral, only condolence messages from people who knew the deceased.

Memoriam Notice

A memoriam notice is used to mark the anniversary of the loss of a loved one. Sometimes these include a verse or poem, or sometimes a message from loved ones.

We also publish birthday memoriams, which are used to remember a lost loved one’s birthday, and memoriams for special occasions such as Mother's Day/Father’s Day/Christmas Memoriams.


An acknowledgement notice is used to thank family and friends for attending a lost loved one’s funeral service, as well as thanking the Funeral Director and anyone else who helped with the service. Total donations collected can also be announced in an acknowledgement notice.

Lasting Tribute

A Lasting Tribute notice can be created at any time to commemorate the passing of a loved one. It’s similar to a Memoriam notice, but can be placed at any time, not just on the anniversary of the death.

Our lasting tribute pages offer the perfect place for family and friends to get together and share memories of their loved one.

Hopefully this explains the different types of notices we offer.

Thanks for reading.
