Memorial Services

A “Memorial Service”, like a funeral, recognises the unique life that has been lived. It can be held at any time before or after the committal and may be chosen because a loved one has died and been laid to rest abroad, or perhaps because it may take many weeks to arrange a gathering of family members.

The families of public figures and community leaders can use a Memorial Service to offer the wider community the chance to express a sense of loss while protecting their own need for closeness and privacy at the funeral itself.

Even if there are no physical remains available and your family wants a more traditional funeral ceremony then we can help. Please see the information about Empty Casket Funerals or speak to our staff.

The Ceremony

As with any farewell ceremony the starting point is the Life Story of the unique individual.

Tell us about your loved one and our experienced staff will guide you towards the ceremony content, practical details, location and music choices that truthfully reflect the person you knew. There are no rules to follow but remember, you will know when a suggestion feels “right”.

We will help you add personal details and touches that make the difference

Dear Brian,

Just a quick email to congratulate you and your team, for what I perceived to be a thoroughly professional and well executed funeral yesterday - it was exceptionally well organised, there was real care and commitment evident, and you were all a pleasure to work with!

Many thanks and well done... You are all welcome back anytime.
