3 Ways to Make Use of Technology at Funeral Services, Bristol, Connecticut

Technology can make a funeral service more personal in several aspects, easing the distance for those who live too far away to attend and memorializing the departed in a long-lasting manner. Even traditional funeral services can incorporate technology in small ways that make a meaningful difference.

Here is how you can incorporate technology into funeral services:

  • Online Broadcast: Funerals are often announced suddenly, leaving long-distance family members and friends with little time to arrange travel. If there are family members unable to attend the ceremony in person, consider using an online broadcast. Simply by setting up a camera and a computer, you can stream the funeral service live, bringing the sentiment of the day to loved ones all over the world.
  • funeral servicesVideo Tribute: Playing a video is a touching way to honor the deceased. Whether using a slideshow of images or home videos, a well-made reel highlighting the life and achievements of your loved one allows you to look back and celebrate their memory.
  • Memorial Website: Nothing is ever truly lost on the internet. One way many families memorialize their loved ones is creating a website to honor their memory. Photos, videos, eulogies, and other personal touches are included to encapsulate everything about the departed’s life.
