What is a memorial service?

A funeral service is a service held to memorialise a loved one with their body present.  A memorial service on the other hand is a service held to memorialise a deceased person with their body not present. The memorial service often takes place weeks or even months after the death has occurred. Increasingly memorial services are being held to commemorate a person’s birthday or the date of their death.

There is no limit to where memorial services can be held with beaches, parks, restaurants, pubs, hotels, and family homes being used as venues.


A memorial service will typically last between 45 mins and 1 hour. There is no formal structure, you may choose to include music, readings, poems, eulogies, and photos. I will be happy to lead the service for you.

“Love is how often you stay alive, even after you are gone.”
