Welcome to Candle Memorials, a not-for-profit website for people who have lost cherished friends or family and want to create an everlasting tribute in memory of the departed by creating a free online memorial.

Because obituaries in local newspapers are very expensive and are often overlooked, this is an effective source for friends and family to interact (here and around the world).

There will never be a charge for our service, as the care and maintenance of this website is sponsored wholly by the National Federation of Funeral Directors.

Once a memorial or candle has been lit, you can share it with friends and family through various social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, everyone can join together and leave messages or light a candle in their memory.

You will find that creating a memorial, leaving a tribute, or lighting a candle is a very quick process and is easy to use, so why not get started and create or find a memorial.
