Cherished Memories

Sensory recall predominantly comes from visual stimuli and when you hear the old adage of ‘A picture speaks a thousand words’ you might perhaps forgive the focus of Memory-Trees.com on giving people that place to create their own digital archive; to remember the lives of loved ones using both written words in the form of poems, prayers and memoirs together with photos and video of particular treasured experiences, of…

Put on Hold – The year we paused

On the 23rd of March 2021, we all collectively had the opportunity to pause, to reflect as part of a National Day. It allowed us a moment to remember and recall how life as we knew it was put on hold, how freedom that most of us were accustomed to was removed and lost. It afforded a minute to fall silent in respect to those 144 thousand plus souls tragically taken…

Faded Rainbows

As our nation recovers from the ordeals of the past year, we should all take a moment to reflect on how we have shown strength and solidarity in the face of the unknown and immense difficulty.

If you cast your mind back to the very start of the pandemic, before even the lockdown, you will remember how we moved from the typical blame-game to the reality that we needed to…

Supporting the National Day of Reflection

Since the first lockdown began in 2020, hundreds of thousands of people have died. Too many lives have been cut short and millions have been bereaved.

Behind the statistics and whatever the cause, every death has been devastating for the people left behind.

Join us on 23 March, the first anniversary of the first UK lockdown, for a National Day of Reflection to reflect on our collective loss, support those who’ve been bereaved,…

Sharing Stories

In a time of information, where anything and anyone is literally at our fingertips it seems strange that in telling a story you don’t have the ability to simply share.

When you think of the (anti-) Social Media world we live in; within the TicTok, Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, Pinterest and Linkedin bubbles, you will note that they have all become broken, all disjointed and designed for particular gain, profit!

Tragic Milestone

If we cast our mind back 12 months I am sure you will remember we were being introduced to a new world of uncertainty, a confused and socially inept time where we knew next to nothing about the COVID-19 virus, no understanding of the statistics and the information we were being given made little sense.

DID YOU KNOW – The Coronavirus is called COVID because CO for corona, VI…

2021 brings time to remember

The start of 2020 has definitely crept in, no large celebrations, virtual gatherings and closely followed by a continued lockdown.

If you are anything like me I had hoped that with a lockdown through December and vaccines being rolled out across the country, in my mind I had rolled all the terrible news, death and ordeal into 2020 so that we could start afresh in the new year, an Etch-a-Sketch…

Lighting a candle in memory

The Forest of Memories is encouraging people to light a candle and to spend a simple moment of reflection on the year we have endured, think about all those who have suffered in so many ways, and remember those who are no longer with us.

It’s a simple idea that we hope people will engage with.  But we believe there is more we need to do as a nation to help the bereaved. Without…
