Is there an easy way for him to record mem­o­ries when they come to him?

O Ro­man, by email Yours says The free Kin­deo bi­og­ra­phy web­site and iPad app helps you and your fam­ily save and share your life sto­ries us­ing pho­tos and videos. With the sim­ple-touse app, you can ask your dad ques­tions and let him an­swer in his own time, which may spark more mem­o­ries. Kin­deo will then cre­ate a pri­vate web­site for you and your fam­ily to en­joy for­ever.

■ A web­site ver­sion for use on all de­vices will be avail­able from Novem­ber. www.kin­deo. com Q My neigh­bour’s hus­band re­cently died and I’ve been try­ing to help her nav­i­gate the mine­field of per­sonal fi­nances. Is there any­one that can help guide her through it?

Name and ad­dress with­held Yours says En­quire at your neigh­bour’s bank to see if they of­fer a be­reave­ment ser­vice – most have a des­ig­nated mem­ber of staff who can help you. Some also of­fer a down­load­able guide (even if you don’t bank with them). The most com­pre­hen­sive one we found was the San­tander Be­reave­ment Guide, which clearly ex­plains what steps you need to take.
