Places You Can Hold a Memorial After a Cremation in Madison, TN Post author

It is customary to hold a memorial service after the cremation of a loved one. A cremation, particularly if there is no funeral service component, won’t always provide the time for your family and friends to meet in the way that would be possible with a traditional funeral service. This is why it makes sense to plan a memorial, or a celebration of life event, after the Madison, TN cremation for a deceased family member. But where would you hold such an event? The good news is that the sky’s the limit, so to speak, since you can hold it basically anywhere.  


Here are a few ideas about where you can hold a memorial service to honor the memory of someone who, even in death, is still very special to you. 


A Funeral Home 


It makes sense to hold a memorial service at a funeral home. It will provide a comfortable forum to host family, friends, and well-wishers who want to honor the deceased and to support the grieving family. All you have to do is contact a funeral director to book a space for the memorial. In fact, the funeral home can help to organize things and can provide all the help you need.  




Does your family attend a church? If your loved ones are religious, then it can make sense to hold a memorial at your place of worship. You may be able to use the facility for free or for a nominal amount if you are a member of the church whose facility you wish to use. It can provide a familiar and comfortable space for attendees to celebrate the life of the deceased.  


Family Home 


Remember that you can hold a memorial service virtually anywhere – and that means home sweet home. If you have the space to accommodate all the people you’d like to have at the memorial service, then you can consider hosting the event in your home. Perhaps you can have the event in the family den and then have a potluck meal in the dining room or on the patio.  




Is there a restaurant in the community where your family has gone for many a meal in the past? If the facility has the space to host a memorial event – perhaps in a banquet room – then you can consider booking the space for a couple of hours. You can then end the event with a meal.  


Great Outdoors 


You can even hold a memorial out in a public park or perhaps further out into nature. Does your family have a cottage? Does your family like to go camping? You can tap into your love for the great outdoors by holding a memorial under the open sky.
