Find a Grave® members can leave a virtual flower on the memorials of loved ones, but for those who want to do more, we wanted to highlight our collaboration with BloomBridge.
BloomBridge is a young business started by Kristen Allen, who is also a long-serving Find a Grave volunteer. Kristen has always enjoyed leaving floral tributes on the graves of her loved ones. Kristen’s grandmother always said, “When it’s my time, don’t you let me be the only one out there without flowers.” Kristen assured her that she would not. But that promise became harder to keep when she moved away from her hometown. After much thought, the idea of BloomBridge was born.
BloomBridge allows customers to order and schedule silk flower arrangement deliveries to the gravesite of their loved ones. This makes it possible to keep the gravesite decorated and cared for, even from a distance. They use delivery drivers (a.k.a. BloomBridge Runners) to make the final-mile delivery. When the flower arrangement is delivered, a picture of the flower arrangement at the gravesite is sent to the customer as a delivery confirmation. This picture provides an added benefit to the customer who wants to ensure the gravesite is maintained and cared for.
In December 2022, we started working with BloomBridge to bring this service to our Find a Grave community. We added a “Flower Delivery” button on memorial pages for burials in the United States. By clicking this link, the user is taken to a unique BloomBridge page called “Grave Flowers” that passes along the memorial’s gravesite location information from Find a Grave. This makes the whole process easier!
To take advantage of a BloomBridge floral delivery, just click this button on a Find a Grave memorial. We hope this service can help you as you remember and honor your family and friends.
