Be Ceremonial’s unique platform helps you create a memorial service ceremony that reflects your story. Choose from our extensive library of secular rituals and create a ceremony to honour this time of change.
A memorial service is a ceremony that memorializes and honours the deceased, typically after the body has been cremated or buried. It’s often led by a celebrant or master of ceremonies with the intention of creating space for individuals and the community to come together to mourn and grieve together.
Typically, a memorial service follows a similar order of events as a funeral, although the deceased’s body is not present at the service. While it often includes specific elements such as a eulogy, readings, prayers, songs, and a reception, there’s an opportunity to create your own rituals and make the memorial unique to the person you’re honouring.
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.
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.
