Are these memoirs and photos on your computer, Saltytom ? If so, you can download onto this site. They come out really well, and you can put whatever you want in them. Worth having a fiddle with it first as there are all sorts of backgrounds, and designs, colours etc. and it can take a while to do if you want to fiddle with it, getting it as you want it.
You can also stop half way and start again the next day.... if you feel like a rest. It keeps it open for you to continue, so no panic.
I've used them for photo books a few times. All sizes and soft and hard backs. All very nice. https://www.snapfish.co.uk/photo-books
I imagine Photobox will be much the same.
