Can too much Social Media be Bad for your Health?
Published 08/02/2021
Ah, social media. 15 years ago, a face book was a collection of photographs used to cast actors for roles, and a tweet was just a noise that birds made. However, in the year 2021, social media is a dominant form of entertainment for many all over the world, and to some a source of lucrative income. In a pre-Covid world, we all consumed large amount of social media, what with there being so much choice available. But in 2020 and in to 2021 – with the vast majority of us spending most of our time at home – social media consumption is higher than ever before. Snapchat, Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest, there’s so much choice and something to suit the tastes of everyone. But how much is too much? And can too much social media be bad for your health? In today’s blog I am going to take a look into this question, which has become ever more prominent in recent times.

What Are The Most Popular Hymns for Funerals?
Published 04/02/2021
As everyone knows, planning a funeral is a difficult, emotional and time-consuming process. With so many things to organise, some things can find themselves left by the wayside until the day draws near. For example, what hymns do you want to be sung during the proceedings? Obviously, there’s thousands upon thousands of options available, but with everything going on, you may not have time to look through them all. In this blog, I’m going to cover some of the most popular hymns sung at funerals, and hope to help you pick some out that you feel are appropriate for the occasion.

How much money was donated to local Hospices through funeral-notices.co.uk in 2020?
Published 01/02/2021
I don’t think you need to hear yet again how ‘unprecedented’ 2020 was, or that it was ‘a year like no other’, but for charities up and down the country it really was something that just could not be planned for. So it was really important for us to make sure our own Donations service was being utilised by as many people as possible, not only to help families and friends raise money in memory of a loved one, but also to help those charities who were struggling though a year that most of us would like to forget. This article is the third in our series looking at how much money we have transferred to charities on your behalf in 2020 and will focus on the beloved local hospices that do so much for people in your local communities. If you want to read up on either of the first two articles then you can find them here: How much money was raised for charity on funeral-notices.co.uk in 2020? How much money was donated to the NHS through funeral-notices.co.uk in 2020?

How Funerals Have Changed Since the Start of the Pandemic
Published 28/01/2021
Sadly, this week has seen us reach the grim milestone of 100,000 UK victims of coronavirus. According to WalesOnline: ‘More than a third of all deaths registered in England and Wales in the week January 15 mentioned Covid-19 on the death certificate - the highest proportion since the pandemic began’. In today’s blog, we are going to take a look at one of the unsung heroes of the pandemic, the Funeral Director, and discover how they have had to adapt to changes and restrictions in the way they offer their vital services to grieving families.

How Can I Plan My Own Funeral?
Published 25/01/2021
Some people like to have everything prepared. They find it comforting to have their life organised so that they’re ready for any eventuality. But some take it a step further: by planning their own funeral. Most people prefer to leave proceedings to their families, but some people will have their own vision of how a funeral should go. If you’re one of those people, you may be asking yourself, where do I begin? In this blog, I’m going to look into how you would go about planning your own funeral.

How much money was donated to the NHS through funeral-notices.co.uk in 2020?
Published 21/01/2021
2020 was a year during which we learned to appreciate the little things, whether that’s spending more time with family or reconnecting with old friends online, or it was having more time to spend tending to your garden or catching up with that pile of books you’ve been meaning to read. But perhaps the most nationally recognised appreciation went towards the NHS. We are lucky in the UK to have the NHS (you only need to look at the healthcare system in the US to see this), and this last year thousands of people took to their doorsteps at the same time and simultaneously acknowledged this great institution by applauding all those who work for the NHS. This appreciation was extended further in the form of donations. All NHS Trusts up and down the country are registered charities, and so anyone can donate money to help out or show support to their local hospitals. Here on funeral-notices.co.uk we give families the ability to donate to charity in memory of a passed loved one, and in 2020 we had over 2,100 individual donations made towards NHS charities.

Blue Monday - 18th January 2021
Published 18/01/2021
Oxford Dictionary defines Blue Monday as the following: “a Monday on which one feels gloomy or dispirited, especially because one has to return to work after the weekend.” It then goes on to say that Blue Monday is: “(in the northern hemisphere) a Monday in January, typically the third Monday of the month, that is characterized as the most depressing day of the year.” As you may have noticed, the day this blog is being published is January 18th, also known as Blue Monday 2021! As this year, it’s even bluer than usual for most of across the UK – and indeed across the world – who are currently in lockdown due to Covid-19. So then, what to do about that? In this blog I’m going to give some ideas on how Blue Monday can be made a little bit cheerier in this difficult time.

Published 14/01/2021

Sometimes during this process, you might feel lost on who to turn to or you feel as if you can’t open up to some people you know. In this blog, we’ll have suggestions on who you can turn to when grieving.

How much money was raised for charity on funeral-notices.co.uk in 2020?
Published 11/01/2021
Here at funeral-notices.co.uk we are very proud of the website we have built and all the unique features that we have to offer, but more importantly we are proud of the community that has grown within our pages. All across the country, friends and families are coming back year after year to pay tribute to the memory of a lost loved one, sharing photos, stories and loving thoughts. But sometimes when someone you love has passed, you want to feel like you’ve done more in their memory to show not only how much you cared, but also that they will leave behind a legacy. That’s why we introduced our own Donations Service that is free to add to any main Funeral Notice at the time of booking. A donation to a charity in someone’s memory is not just a nice thing to do as an alternative to flowers, but it really does help those grieving to know just how much people cared, as well as giving a meaning to an otherwise seem to be a very meaningless loss.
