Memorial Services

In recent years, cremation has become increasingly popular among Medicine Hat families and increased the number of memorial services being held. A memorial service shares many similarities between both funeral services and celebrations of life. It is essentially a funeral service with some traditional elements that aims to celebrate the life of the deceased. Unlike a traditional funeral though, the body of the deceased is not present for the service. In some cases, the family may choose to have an urn holding the remains displayed at the funeral home.

There are many reasons that families choose to hold a memorial service including allowing more time for planning, the freedom to personalize the service to represent the deceased or to pay respects to the deceased's religious beliefs. A standard memorial service usually includes music, selected readings, a prayer and a eulogy. If your family is looking to personalize the service further, this can be accomplished through a celebration of life.

In any case, Saamis Memorial Funeral Chapel & Crematorium is proud to help families in our community honour their loved ones with beautiful and respectful memorial services, Our Medicine hat funeral home staff can help you plan a meaningful service that will meet your family's needs and budget.
