'Virtual Congregation' technology helps to bring everyone together
It saddens us when we hear of family members and close friends being unable to pay their respects to a loved one by attending their funeral. People are unable to attend for many reasons, including ill health or infirmity, because they live too far away, or because travel costs are prohibitive. It occurred to us that technology should be able to provide an answer, and we think we have found the perfect solution.
We are pleased to announce that we have invested in facilities to broadcast funeral services to those who are unable to attend, both at home and abroad using platforms such as Zoom and Skype. We create a private video and audio stream, allowing family and friends to watch and hear the service as it is happening. This technology also allows those who aren't able to attend to contribute to the service by giving a tribute or reading a eulogy.
The reaction we have had since we installed the technology has been overwhelmingly positive. If you have any questions about how it works, please contact us and we’d be delighted to explain it further.
