Memorial Service Ceremony

Be Ceremonial’s unique platform helps you create a Memorial Service ceremony by choosing from our library of curated rituals to acknowledge your unique experience.

What is a Memorial Service Ceremony?

A memorial service is a ceremony that memorializes and honours the deceased, typically after the body has been cremated or buried. It can take place in a funeral home, in a cemetery, in a special setting, or in the home of a loved one.

A memorial is often led by a celebrant or master of ceremonies with the intention of creating space for people to come together as they mourn publicly and grieve privately.
Unlike a funeral, the deceased’s body is not usually present at the service and there’s an opportunity to create your rituals that are unique to the person being honoured.

Why is it Important?

The way we process grief is unique to each of us, and a memorial can offer people an opportunity to mourn in their own way, often in a communal setting. As our world changes, memorials can also be adapted to virtual settings for those who can’t be physically present, or you can invite people to do something special on their own terms if you don’t want a large gathering.

Because a memorial service typically occurs after the remains have been cared for, there can be more room for creativity than with a traditional funeral. By choosing rituals that reflect the person who died and the community that is gathering, a memorial can offer something different to each person attending.

How do I create a Memorial Service ceremony?

However you choose to acknowledge this time of transition, our app will guide you through the process. You can choose to create a ceremony on your own, with a friend, or as a group. You can even gift this experience to someone you care for.

With hundreds of universal rituals to choose from, our app offers something for everyone. Simply follow our ritual framework to create a ceremony unique to you.
