And this truly is communal grief. From mothers who have lost babies in childbirth, to those whose relatives have died through suicide, virtual groups are springing up on the site to help the bereaved get in touch with each other. About 100 new memorials are created on Gone Too Soon every day, says site manager Nicola Davis.
"It's really snowballed in the last six months. As the site started to grow, we've seen more evidence of people networking, because they are realising how it can help them. Loads of people log in every day and leave candles and poems on others' tribute sites."
The site allows users to customise their pages by uploading photographs and music, and lets visitors leave their condolences and light virtual candles.
