To Write Their Names In The Sand FAQ



When will you next be taking name requests?

We will update on when we are next taking requests here.

How much does it cost to have my childs name written in the sand?

Having your childs name written in the sand is a free service. We will write their name, photograph it at sunset and then create a memorial post for them on the memorial website. Having this memorial post is a gift from us to you in memory of our son Christian. If you like the photograph and would like to purchase the high resolution image in a jpeg format which is emailed to you for $20 AUS. This can all be done at the website.

What is the Rainbow Wait List?

When you come to the website to make your name request you childs name will go onto our Rainbow Wait List. You will then be able to see where your childs name is on the wait list and have a good indication of when we will be able to write their name. If your childs name disappears off the list you will know that it has been written and up on the website.

Do you write names for adults that have died too?


This memorial site is just for children. We are happy to write names from conception up until mid 20's.

Where do I go to find my child's name on the memorial page?

You can Google To Write Their Names In The Sand and your childs name.
Alternatively you can do a search by looking through the website archive on the left hand side of the page. You will need to know the month your childs name was written.

How young does my child have to be to have their name written in the sand?

We have not placed an age limit on the page. We are happy to write names for babies from conception up to late teenage to young adult years. As much as we would love to write names for adults we simply do not have the time.

Do you re write children's names if they have already been requested previously or do you put up the same one that has been written before?

We write each name as they are requested. We want everyone to have their very own photo. It does not matter if your child's name had been previously requested. Each person is unique in their own way and so is each photo.

How long will it take to have my child's name written?

Usually we will have it written for you within 2 weeks. Sometimes it may take a little longer depending on the weather conditions and how many requests we are receiving at the time.

Which beach do you write all of the names at?

Mullaloo Point Beach, Western Australia
