Timeline of a Lifetime, Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Mass
webCemeteries.com was one of the first companies in the industry to offer online memorials to cemeteries. Over the years, webCemeteries.com has released several new versions of these memorial pages, and in 2016 rolled out the Timeline of a Lifetime edition.
These new pages were designed at the direction of a pilot group comprised of Mount Auburn Cemetery, West Laurel Hill Cemetery, and Cypress Lawn Memorial Park. webCemeteries.com met with these cemeteries to outline their business needs and goals for their use of this platform. The common goal was to create a tool that families could use to collect and share their memories in an easy and meaningful way, resulting in a timeline of their loved one’s life.
This platform was built to address a variety of business needs expressed by the pilot group, including use as an aftercare follow-up sales tool, use in promoting historical figures at the cemetery, and use on a pre-need basis for building timelines that can be activated after burial.
webCemeteries.com received a KIP Award at the 2017 ICCFA Expo for the Timeline of a Lifetime platform. This is the third KIP Award received by webCemeteries.com.
