There are as many ways to celebrate a life as there are to live one.


There are an endless variety of celebrations, services, and personalising options.

If the family choose to move away from ‘traditional’ services, the options for the location of a funeral or memorial service are many and varied.


Some of the following locations are more appropriate for a memorial service (either with the deceased not present or the ashes of the deceased present), rather than a funeral service where the deceased in present.

  • Church
  • Funeral Home Chapel
  • Cemetery/Crematorium Chapel
  • Restaurant
  • Bar
  • Favourite park
  • Favourite outdoor spot
  • Lake/ocean/beach
  • Golf Course
  • At a second family home/vacation home
  • At your home/vacation home
  • In your garden/backyard


There are many venues with reception rooms available that are suitable for a memorial service with refreshments served afterwards to the guests eg Golf Clubs, Yacht Clubs, Bowling Clubs and Specialist Event Function Venues.  If you are wanting to hold the service in a public location, such as a park or beach, you must check if permission to hold an event is necessary from the local council or authority.
