Who we are
HeavenAddress is not a religious website or affiliated with any religious group or organisation. HeavenAddress is a universal memorial community, built to unite families and communities as they celebrate, honour, and respect the lives of lost friends or loved ones regardless of time, place or creed.
The word 'heaven' is used as the more generic concept of the place of a peaceful afterlife; not as an illustration of Judaeo-Christian beliefs.
The company was named HeavenAddress because we want it to become the online destination, or address, for you to join with others to remember your lost friends or loved ones.
The HeavenAddress team believe that:
- every person is a hero to somebody
- every life lived is unique and important
- the sharing of memories can provide comfort to those left behind
- connecting with family, friends and organisations creates a community, which provides comfort, support and a sense of belonging.
What is an online memorial?
For many, the term 'online memorial' is new; you may have heard of the alternative terms 'online tributes', 'obituaries', 'death notices' or 'funeral notices'.
We'd prefer to think of HeavenAddress as much more than an obituary or death notice site - your listing is intended to be a lasting record of the life of your lost friend or loved one.
An online memorial allows you to preserve and share your precious memories with family and friends around the world. A HeavenAddress memorial allows you to share photos, post tributes, write condolence messages and much more than a traditional funeral listing.
An online memorial is neither morbid and nor does it focus on death. The primary objective of HeavenAddress memorials are to help you remember and celebrate the precious moments you shared with your friends and lost loved ones, and to share those memories.
The HeavenAddress difference
Unlike other online memorial sites, HeavenAddress does not place advertisements on our memorial pages, preferring to maintain a respectful and peaceful space for our customers.
We do include the names and details of partners associated with each listing including funeral homes, memorial parks, charity organisations and other related services.
We are partnered with over 80 funeral industry providers in over 250 locations, and many of these partners choose to offer a complementary HeavenAddress memorial to their clients.
If your funeral director or memorial park is not partnered with HeavenAddress we charge a low, one-off fee of $59 for a lasting online memorial. If you refer your funeral director to us and they partner with HeavenAddress, the cost of the memorial will be refunded in full.

"Thank you very much, thank God, there are people that started websites like this, as it helps everyone deal with their loss in their own way & this website does help all concerned."
"You are providing an excellent service for the community.This site looks 'happy' therefore comforting."
"That's perfect team!! you guys are tops, mum's (online memorial) is looking real good now. I will be in touch soon as i would like to set up one for my Dad and Gran. I highly recommend you folks to everyone i know."
"What a great site, a friend I have not seen in years just posted a tribute for mum. Thank you!"
"Thank you so very much, this is wonderful. I have family in Australia & NZ and this is a great way for them to connect to Corey as well as his parents. I really do appreciate the platform you have provided to family... it really is wonderful."
"I just emailed our funeral director the link to show her as they conducted both my parents' funerals weeks apart and told her they should put the link in their little brochure they give out after the funeral. I'm sure they must know about it already but just in case they don't. I told her how easy it was to use and navigate around and how great it will be for all our friends interstate and overseas who wished they could be at the funeral."
