Your Biscuit Tin is as unique as your life has been

One of the hardest things to live with following the loss of a loved one is regret. Regretting the things that were said, or that went unsaid, the things you didn’t have time for and the things that can no longer happen ever again. 

Have you thought about never being able to hear your loved one’s voice again? Or never learning about those family stories, losing all of that information about previous generations and their life experiences?

As well as being a practical tool to reduce the amount of time spent closing down your loved one’s life, Biscuit Tin means that these precious memories no longer have to be lost. They can be preserved and enjoyed, as well as being handed down to the next generation.

Inside your Biscuit Tin there are different sections, which you can work through in whatever order you choose. If reducing the disruption and admin associated with closing down a life is your primary goal, then uploading policies and official documents might be your first priority. If it’s more important to you that your nominees can access more emotional support, in the form of voice notes, family tree information or precious photographs and videos, then the Memories section is going to be where you want to begin.

Your Biscuit Tin will be as unique as your life has been. There’s no right or wrong way to fill it up and the end result is a wonderful resource that will provide both practical and emotional support when you’re no longer around.

The best way to get started is simply to sign up for a free Biscuit Tin and then upload items one step at a time. You could even turn it into a family activity – ask the grandkids what they want to know, or want you to share and start making even more memories while you populate your Biscuit Tin together.

Here are some prompts to help you get started:

  • When and where did you first meet your partner?
  • Did you have any pets when you were growing up?
  • When you were a child, what did you dream of doing when you were grown up?
  • What was your favourite bedtime story as a child, or to read to your own children?
  • Have a look through your phone and save your favourite video clips into your Biscuit Tin
