Funeral Planning Information » Planning a Memorial Service

What is a Memorial Service?

A memorial service is similar to a funeral service, although the body of the deceased is not present. It is usually held at a later date and brings together family and friends to remember and celebrate the life of their loved one.

This can be an important step in the healing process, providing an opportunity for people to mourn together and to acknowledge the reality of their loss.
