Gone Too Soon: let their memory live on...
The social enterprise, founded by Terry in 2005 has grown into UK’s leading memorial website. It is free to use, with over 60,000 individual memorials and 12 million visits per month.
In mid 2015 the ownership of the GoneTooSoon website was transferred to Safe Hands Plans in the hope they would continue the legacy I created and I'd hoped the site would continue to support people eternally, however, I was saddened to learn that the current owners have taken the decision to close the site after many years. There is some comfort to know that 'Muchloved.com' are offering a free service that will reassure and support people, and enable them to create a tribute to remember someone special.

The History of Gone Too Soon
Terry George set up set up Gone Too Soon in November 2005. Initially he set up a website for a friend who had died in Thailand when many of their mutual friends could not make the journey to pay their respects.
Later that year, two young men came into one of his bars in tears. They had been to a service of remembrance for Chris Benson, aged 20, who was killed by a hit and run driver in Morley, Leeds.
