Memorial Services in St. Louis
Listening to the wishes and needs of your family since 1953
Creating memorial services that are unique to families and loved ones whose lives are being celebrated is our business. We aren’t in the business of hosting funerals, instead we are in the business of creating an experience that will allow friends and family to come together in their own way to share stores, grieve, sympathize and show support to one another. St. Louis memorial services are a great option for many families who want to honor their loved one in a very special way.
The Memorial Service
A memorial service a little bit different than a traditional funeral as the body of your loved one is not present during the ceremony. For some families, this is a personal choice, and for others there are reasons that the body cannot be there or cremation was chosen instead. In some cases, a memorial service, without the presence of a body, is what the deceased had requested before their passing.
Creating the Memorial Service
Like a traditional funeral service, a memorial service is unique to the family as well as the deceased. One of our directors will work closely with you to create a memorial service that honors your loved one in a way befitting to the life that they lived. We can help create the most beautifully simple services as well as those that are more involved and everything in between. With years of St. Louis funeral and memorial service experience, we have the knowledge and the tools to ensure that the memorial service is well planned and well executed from start to finish.
