Memorial services

A memorial service is an opportunity for you to say goodbye to a person who has died. You may wish to arrange this some time after the death, when you have had some valuable time to come to terms with your loss and can reflect clearly on the person who died and what they meant to you.

Some people choose to arrange a memorial service when they scatter the ashes of a loved one, possibly in a park, woodland or at a sports ground. Others may decide to have a memorial ceremony when they plant a tree or unveil a plaque in memory of the person who has died.

Our funeral celebrants can advise on a service that will reflect your wishes. They will also speak to you about the person who has died so they can create a personal tribute, tailored to their individual character.
