Memorial Service Package

A Memorial Service is a ceremony that memorialises and honours the deceased after the body has been cremated or buried. A Memorial Service has the same meaning of any other type of funeral service; honour and pay tribute to the deceased. The Memorial Service often takes place weeks or even months after the death has occurred.

Why Choose a Memorial Service

We find the most common reason people choose a Memorial Service is that they want the extra time to plan a ceremony. Since a Memorial Service can take place after the body has been buried or cremated, there is no rush to organise a ceremony. Immediately following a death, some families are not emotionally ready to have a ceremony – they need time to grieve. Relatives and friends that live far away can organise their schedule to travel for the Memorial Service.

Memorial Service vs. Funeral

The biggest difference of a traditional Funeral and a Memorial Service is that the body is not present in a casket at a Memorial Service. However, an urn with the loved one's ashes may be present at a Memorial Service. Both traditional funeral services and memorial services have structure, and both bring the community together in support and remembrance. However, a traditional Funeral Service is much more structured and formal. A traditional Funeral Service is often associated with religion so it is often led by a member of clergy, whereas a Memorial Service is led by a celebrant or master of ceremonies. Memorial Services often allow for each guest to participate to some level, where guests of a traditional funeral are really just there to observe and reflect.

Places to Hold a Memorial Service

You have a lot of flexibility when it comes to a location especially since the body will not be present. We have had families hold Memorial Services at beaches, community centres, parks, restaurants, banquet halls, and at family homes. For some that want some religious facets it is probably best to choose a place of worship. Keep in mind that you want a space/location that can hold a large group of people and that has the amenities for any of the features you have planned.
