About

Traditionally, only the rich and famous were worthy of a formal obituary but professional obituary writer Alison Shaw believes there is no such thing as an ordinary life.

Pay tribute to a loved one by commissioning a professional obituary capturing all the details of their unique and wonderful life that might otherwise be forgotten.

Alison will write their story, illustrated with your favourite photographs, and email you a copy within days. You can print it out to keep for future generations, distribute it at the funeral or send it to those who cannot attend.
