Setting off for the National Funeral Exhibition

The last few weeks for The Online Book Company have been very busy. We have all been gearing up, and getting set to exhibit at the National Funeral Exhibition taking Place at Stoneleigh, between the 12th and 14th of June. The NFE is a bi-annual exhibition that attracts a range of people involved in the Funeral Industry, from all over the country and beyond. But why are we going?

Well, at The Online Book Company we produce bespoke, online books for a range of different people, organisations, events, and much more. We are, at the exhibition,  presenting our ‘Individual Online Memorial Book’ whereby families and friends can choose to celebrate the life of a loved one in a unique, special and online place. Families can share memories, photos, video, from all over the world, and can even link the books to their social media and submit donations to charity through a simple ‘donate’ option, whilst maintaining the look and feel of a more traditional Book of Remembrance.

Families have told us what a great resource our books are, with many going back to a book again and again to share family news, or to add photos. Instead of simply commemorating a life, the books allow a life to be truly celebrated, acting as a hub for people to visit and to enjoy stories they may not have otherwise heard. 

We can’t wait to get to Stoneleigh, and to see faces old and new and to show people just how fantastic our Online Books are! 

All packed and ready to go!

The Day The Online Book Company ‘Made a Mint’ …. To give away at the National Funeral Exhibition

 Today saw the delivery of some minty treats, to The Online Book Company Office, they really do look mint!

Beth (being ever so entrepreneurial), suggested that we should follow in the footsteps of the man who invented the Polo, (who made a mint) and sell them on!

But Julie, sensing a real ‘predicamint’ arising, said that we had a responsibility to spread minty fresh breath among all those who visit The Online Book Company at the National Funeral Exhibition. Harry said ‘Bah Humbug’ (just like the sheep who hated mints) but knew deep down that the mints would be a lovely thing to give to all those who come to see us, in Hall 1 stand 100 between the 12th and the 14th of June.
