When Is the Right Time for a Memorial Service?

Funeral Home Hayward

Memorial services are ceremonies that take place after the cremation or burial services of the deceased individual. If you’re planning a memorial service for someone but feel unsure about what date to schedule it for, then know that memorial services can be held at any time following a person’s death. These ceremonies offer a versatile way to honor a life that was lost, and that do not require a body or cremated remains to be present.

Because a memorial service can be held at any time, it’s ideal to choose one that is convenient for as many people who would like to attend as possible. Also, the location that you wish to use may influence the right date for a memorial service. For example, if the deceased had a favorite park or beach that he enjoyed visiting, then opening dates and weather may be a factor that you should consider when scheduling the memorial service.

At our memorial park in Hayward, the Chapel of the Chimes Hayward staff provides experienced and respectful memorial and funeral planning services to help you honor your loved one who has passed on. To find out more about what we do, please call (510) 400-4442.
