Create memorial website and invite guests

Organize a Funeral

After all of the details of the funeral have been decided, and the guest list is finalized, it's time send a funeral announcement invitation.

A Memorial website is an easy way to communicate with friends, family, and the greater community, about the death and details of funeral and memorial events.

Tell guests where to go and how to help by creating a free Memorial invitation website from Autumn. Once complete, send the link in an email or text message.

The Memorial website will allow you to:

  • Share important information and memories about the deceased
  • Provide event dates, locations, and links to any virtual memorials
  • Review RSVPs and condolence gifts
  • Ask for support before, during, and after events
  • Post memories, photos, and videos, and ask others to do the same

Personal Considerations


Will a post-memorial activity be held for some or all funeral attendees?


Include information about the event on the Memorial website.

You can create as many events as needed, and guests can RSVP to each respectively.
