 Demand for QR Codes on Gravestones

Gravestones in United Kingdom may have barcodes on them as preferred by many relatives of the dead, giving them access to an exclusive space on the internet earmarked to pay tribute to the departed soul.

Presently, there is a great demand for QR codes, according to funeral directors in the UK.

When QR or Quick Response codes are engraved on the gravestones, visitors can pay tribute as well as have access to an interactive website with a mere swipe of a mobile phone. Thus, they can get access to photographs, videos and tributes as well as post their own thoughts, thus making it an interactive space.

The technology is quite pricey with the QR codes costing up to 300 pounds. Hosting and set-up of the website attracts an additional charge of 95 pounds.

Chester Pearce, in Poole, Dorset is the first funeral director to provide the service in the UK. Its managing director Stephen Nimmo said, "I thought we could use technology to provide more information about people who have died to bring back the memories. People can make their websites as simple or as complicated as they like and add as much or as little information as they want.

The expired person's family can use a password to create and update the website to keep memories of the loved one alive.
