Bringing photos to life with spoken memories

Together at a Distance

Staying together at a distance

In this time of social distancing, we are all facing unique challenges.  There is a need to be physically apart, yet a desire to stay connected together.  Our Memory Box provides a unique opportunity to bridge this divide.  It is the perfect gift for distant friends and relatives for milestone birthdays, anniversaries and funerals.

Please contact us to see how we can help.

How it works

Bringing photos to life with stories, memories and greetings

The Chronicle Memory Box lets you attach audio recordings to your photos.  

By touching a photo onto the box, the associated audio recording will play. 

Our simple and unique ‘touch and play’ method means anyone can use the memory box. Simply turn on and touch your photos onto the memory box to listen to the associated stories. 

There’s no ‘apps’ to download and there's no smartphones, PC's or iPads to worry about either.

Preserve your memories to enjoy in the future.

We provide the box, you provide the memories

A picture speaks a thousand words.

Chronicle Digital Storytelling is passionate about helping people to record, preserve and celebrate their personal stories.  We have been working in the UK since 2015, but our history goes back much further.  We have worked with people of all ages to help preserve important stories and memories (our oldest participant was 101).  We also work with respected organisations such as the Suffolk Records Office, local museums, and BT on story based community projects.  Our idea for the Chronicle Memory Box arose as we continually explored new ways to allow people to preserve and access their stories in a simple way.  

We are based in the UK.  See our website here.
