Ideas for Memorial Services

affordable memorial services Glen Burnie flowersEvery day, we at Simplicity Cremation & Funeral Services hear stories about how people are struggling to find meaningful memorial services to honor a loved one who has been cremated. Somehow they think that cremation means there can be no memorial services, or commemorative event – and that’s simply not true.

A cremation ceremony or memorial service simply sets aside time to celebrate the personality and accomplishments of a loved one. And, it gives comfort and support to those left behind. It can take place prior to the cremation, or afterwards. It can also be part of an ash scattering ceremony.


Here are some popular places for memorial services:

  • The Beach
  • A Lake
  • A Local Park
  • The Family Backyard
  • A River or Creek Side
  • At Home
  • A Favorite Restaurant
  • A Golf Course
  • Onboard a Boat

The cremation memorial you create should be full of experiences: sights, sounds, word, music; good food, and good friends. You could incorporate:

  • A photo slideshow of your loved one's life
  • A playlist of your loved one's favorite songs
  • A time for guests to come forward to tell stories: they could light a candle or incense before or after story or offering has been shared.
  • Scattering the cremated remains during the ceremony
  • Distributing cremated remains in small containers so that guests take a memento to keep
  • Placing cremated remains in biodegradable balloons, to be released as a group
  • Placing small amount of cremated remains in floatable, biodegradable structure, to be released into water
  • Arranging for a dove or butterfly release
  • Gathering friends for a blessing of a garden or special spot in honor of your loved one
  • Blessings of various faiths or spiritual practices

Is the Time Right for You?

Perhaps you aren’t yet ready to plan such an event. And that’s okay – in fact, choosing cremation has given you the time you may need to feel ready to take this on.

Yet, we encourage you to have some cremation ceremony gathering at some time – whether now or in the future – to commemorate your loved one’s life. When you’re ready, call us at (410) 777-5295 to explore your affordable memorial services or cremation ceremony options in Maryland.
