Remembering loved ones lost during pandemic

by Laura Johnston

A book of remembrance has been launched for all those who have died as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Remember Me is an online memorial that today, St Paul’s Cathedral launched for those in the UK – of all faiths, beliefs or none – who have died as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Family, friends and carers of those who have died can submit, free of charge, the name, photograph and a short message in honour of a deceased person via the Remember Me website.

Cllr Shelley Powell, Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhoods said: “This virtual book of remembrance is a way of helping us remember those we have lost to this terrible disease and hopefully finding comfort in our memories.”

Members of the public can register details of their family member or friend on Remember Me: A book of remembrance for the UK via: www.rememberme2020.uk and in time it is also intended that the online memorial will become a physical memorial at the Cathedral.

The deceased person must have been living in the UK. Remember Me will be open for entries for as long as needed.
