People that are planning these memorials should bear in
mind the wishes of the deceased when planning these
services. Individuals need to bear in mind the length of
the ceremony, as most of the participants will be
standing. There also may be inclement weather conditions
in place and the needs of the guests need to be
considered when planning the graveside memorial itself.

service is the fact that a date needs to be selected for
everyone to attend. It also should be planned as either
a formal or informal ceremony. The ceremony itself
should reflect the wishes of the deceased, and what they
would have wanted for a memorial. Remember to notify all
family and friends as to when the ceremony will take
place and the exact time and date. It is also important

attendance will not be effected adversely by the weather
conditions, or the sun. Also should there should be
special arrangements made if there is to be special
music provided at the ceremony.

goodbye to the individual in question and will be often
be the loved one's last memory of the deceased. It is
often fitting to let other family members or friends
give last tributes toward the deceased and discuss fond
memories they have. This will help make the graveside
memorial something to remember. Graveside funeral
services are often lovely and traditional sendoffs for
the deceased, and give the loved ones the chance to say
