Remember me

The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way mourn our loved ones; altering the ways we are able to say goodbye.

St Paul’s Cathedral has launched ‘Remember Me’, an online book of remembrance for all those who have died as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. People of any faith, or none, are invited to contribute to Remember Me. Visit the Remember Me website.
