Remembering a loved one
Updated 25 January 2021
The pandemic prevents people mourning and remembering loved ones in the usual ways. There are other ways to do so.
You can remember somebody who has died in Essex as a result of the coronavirus pandemic at www.rememberme2020.uk. This national book of remembrance is open to people of any religious faith or none. It is a space to remember anybody who has died in the UK as a result of the pandemic, whether they had COVID-19 or not.
You can post tributes online to remember individuals and share in collective grief.
You may wish to post a photo and personalised online dedication on the Cruse website.
Other ways to remember somebody include:
- creating a special spot in your home or garden
- creating and sharing a playlist of their favourite music
- posting a tribute in a local newspaper or
- sharing memories in a social media group
- Sudden is a charity that supports people after sudden death, including from COVID-19. It has other ideas for memorialising somebody who has died
- Faith Action has links to coronavirus advice from leading faith organisations
