Cremation Funeral Services

By Karen S Musselman

Cremation funeral services are services that are held when a person has chosen to be cremated. Generally, there are no real differences between cremation services and funeral services, except that there may be a type of urn in place of a casket since the body is absent.

Cremation services also don't have to take place within a certain time frame as a traditional funeral service, so this can make it easier on the family of the loved one since they have more time to prepare. But just as with a funeral service, cremation memorials should also be planned with care, keeping these top aspects in mind.

Time and Place of the Memorial Service

Since you can have cremation funeral services just about anywhere, you may want have it just about anywhere except the funeral home. Cremation services are a solemn occasion but they don't need to be made even more depressing by holding the service right at a funeral home.

You may contact a local church about having the service there. Even if you aren't a member of the church, the minister may allow cremation funeral services to be conducted at the church anyway just out of consideration for the community and in respect for the deceased.

Many churches allow weddings to be held in the church by non-members. You may need to attend a regular church service or two prior to the memorial service, so keep that in mind when you contact the churches.

If the departed was not an especially religious person, you may think about having the service elsewhere, maybe a favorite park or meeting place or even a banquet room at their favorite restaurant.

Set the Appropriate Tone for the Service

If you're planning on having someone give the main eulogy, make sure it was someone who was actually close to the departed loved one. A childhood best friend is usually asked to speak first, especially if they maintained close contact with the loved one until their passing.

You can also ask a few other people ahead of time if they'd like to speak or tell some stories.

For indoor cremation funeral services when appropriate to the tone of the service or something the loved one may have liked, you can have memorial candles for people to light as they either enter the building or leave.

Memorial Keepsakes for Cremation Funeral Services

It's fairly traditional that keepsakes are handed out to those guests who have taken the time to come and pay their last respects and greet the family of the loved one. Often there are funeral programs and funeral prayer cards that are tokens of appreciation to the guests who have arrived.

Other keepsakes that are used at cremation funeral services in addition to or even in place of programs or prayer cards are memorial bookmarks. Memorial bookmarks can be used in place of the programs or in place of the prayer cards yet complement the programs to commemorate the memorial service of the loved one.

Ideal for cremation funeral services, memorial bookmarks can be printed with a photo of the departed and a favorite verse or saying on one side and the reverse side can be printed with the date of the loved one's passing and the date and location of the memorial service.

Funeral Thank You Notes

Some families opt to send out funeral thank you notes to those who attended the service. You can add memorial bookmarks to the notes instead of handing them out at the service, just as an extra memorial keepsake to remember the loved one by.

Karen Musselman's All Occasion Custom Laminated Bookmarks has more than 80 designs that can be customized for beautiful memorial bookmarks for cremation funeral services.
