If you have ever attended a funeral or memorial service and come away disappointed because you thought it was inappropriate or that the deceased would have hated it, then this book can help.

This book is ok if you are in the business of planning/assisting with memorials on a regular basis, so for clergy members, etc. is is a useful resource. For thinking creatively about memorials, however, it provides too many models that are ready for adaptation.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Memoriam by Edward Searle, November 14, 2008
This review is from: In Memoriam: A Guide to Modern Funeral and Memorial Services (2nd Edition) (Paperback)
I work for a funeral home and am sometimes called upon to perform memorial services for people without a church or clergy person. This book is very helpful because it contains several complete services that can be customized to fit any situation. This would be a great book for clergy and funeral professionals as well as family members hoping for a more personal and creative service.

I was helping to plan a do-it-yourself memorial service for a person in the Unitarian-Universalist tradition. This book provided great background information as well as a selection of interesting services for inspiration. Our service came off flawlessly because we had prepared and this book was a great tool in helping us to do that.
