Our story

We want to create a world where everyone is remembered and cherished for future generations.

Memories is the world's respectful, ad-free space for all memories to be safely kept and collected online. 

We believe that every life lived is important and that meaningful memories should be shared and preserved on a digital platform - forever.

Where Did You Begin?

Memories was founded by in Melbourne, Australia by John Bongiorno, Andrew Ranger, and Andrew Mackinnon in 2013 - where all our developers and support teams are still based.

In just a few years the Memories community has since grown to be used by people in over 20 countries including the USA, Canada, South Africa and the Philippines. 

Where Are You Going?

Our goal is to keep our community’s content online forever, to eventually become a resource for their children and children's children - with every tribute, obituary and memorial page published helping us edge closer to achieving this goal.

Where Do Your Fees Go?

A large proportion of our fees goes directly to staff to help moderate content, and web hosting services. We aim to always be advertising free, and stay a public resource long into the future.

How Do You Help Your Partners?

We provide free tools and services for funeral directors, pastoral carers, community groups and charities to publish tributes, obituaries and notices to our platform. This is our gift to the global community, and we invite these partners to contact us and join our journey.

Our Legacy and Promise

We believe Memories has a unique part to play in this every growing digital world, we want to be a beautiful, spam free and kind corner of the internet, where only loving messages are broadcast to the world. We will never data mine your information or sell your data onwards to advertisers or third parties.

We hope that you grow to cherish our site as we do, now and into the future.
