Barcodes On Headstones

Barcodes on headstones?  Yup!   A funeral company in the southern English town of Poole is offering to add quick response (QR) codes to headstones!

Scanning the barcodes with a smartphone will link users to online memorials illustrated with pictures, videos and tributes from family and friends.

These barcodes will also enable cemetery visitors to learn a lot more about the person buried.  A traditional headstone might show age, date of birth and death date, and maybe a quote. “It’s about keeping people’s memories alive in different ways,” said managing director
Stephen Nimmo.
