A memorial service is, essentially, a funeral service without the coffin present. The cremation usually takes place a day or two following a death, once the paperwork is all completed, and the memorial service takes place sometime after – in some cases, weeks or months afterwards.
The beauty of a memorial service is it can be held virtually anywhere and take whatever form you feel is right for your family. It can be as structured as a funeral service, or as free-style as you wish. It may take the form of a picnic on the beach or local park. It may be a family gathering at a favourite restaurant on a significant day such as a birthday or anniversary. It can be whatever you need it to be.
