So that when the minister is speaking, he refers to the Urn and people can an idea about what they would like to say about the perished when guest visitors speak or give a eulogy.

When planning a cremation funeral service you may decide that instead of flowers to have the money given to the person’s favorite charity or to medical research. You can announce this at the main gathering – it’s sure to get a positive response. If you are on a confined budget you can use some of this money towards special memorial cards with a favorite picture of the deceased or a favorite poem or a thank you for attending the service of the loved one who has passed away.

A less formal gathering after the service can lighten the mood. This get together should allow people to eat, drink and share memories of the person that they are there to honor. If you are organizing the after service do then make a point of thanking the attendees in a light manner, invite them to chat and eat. In some cultures it is the norm to have a celebration, rather than mourning. Even if the party only lifts the mood for a few hours, it will ease everyone’s tension.
