A Memorial funeral service is very similar to a burial service with one main difference; there is normally not a body of the person whose life is being remembered present.
There is greater flexibility for families to plan and organise the memorial service as they are not governed by a set time to physically bury the deceased.
In the main funerals are normally held within weeks of the passing, however as the body of the person that has died is not present, it allows the family and friends of the deceased more time to make their plans for the funeral service.
We were not able to commemorate the life of my brother abroad, but you helped us to put together a beautiful memorial service for all of us here

"How much doe a memorial funeral cost please?"
Costs are obviously considerably less for a memorial funeral service as there are no payments to be made for funeral directors, crematoriums or burial costs of a cemetery.
However families may wish to still have 'a final resting place' in memory of their loved one. This can take many forms, including vaults, plaques, trees, benches and plants that can also be purchased and named in remembrance of the loved one.The costs for your memorial funeral plans will depend on whether you have a simple funeral ceremony with very few additional services or one that is more elaborate.
Thank You so much for everything. It takes a special person to do what you do for people when they need it most.
