A Memorial Service is a service where the body of the deceased is not present. The service may be held after the burial or cremation of the person. In many instances if the person was cremated the cremated remains are often present. This service may be held at the funeral home or at church.
Often a limited service is chosen by families to include a service at a grave or Crematory. There is usually no visitation or viewing prior to the committal at graveside.
The simplest way of final disposition is direct cremation or burial. This option eliminates public visitation and any kind of ceremony.
