Memorial services

Our memorial services allow you to arrange a separate service fitting to the person who’s died, after government restrictions around funerals have been lifted. This means family and friends can come together for a service to remember your loved one.

We know how important saying goodbye is, but at this time your options will be limited. As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, attendees at funeral services are restricted, and in some areas, no one can attend.

After the cremation or burial has taken place, our memorial services will help you, your friends and family get together to remember your loved one in your own way. This will take place once the government restrictions on funerals have been lifted. We can help you arrange this now or in a few months, whenever you are ready.

We have two memorial service options:

  • Celebration of Life Service is a service we arrange and a funeral director will attend
  • Family Memorial Tribute is where we support you to arrange your own service

The service could be anything from a traditional church service, to planting a tree somewhere special or an ashes scattering ceremony. Your local funeral director will discuss all the options and give you all the help you may need to arrange a fitting service for your loved one.
