Service sheets are an integral part of the funeral process. As they offer a very tangible keepsake to every person attending the service. Although it does not have to be a step by step guide of what will occur at the funeral, it is more a memorial of that day. Often names of those participating will be listed, perhaps the music may be itemized as this was special to the deceased, there may be a collage of photographs showing the deceased’s life, or it may record the hymns to be sung on the day.
At Harbour City Funeral Home we are aware that personalisation is an important element to any funeral service. That is why we have a qualified Graphic Designer on our team to ensure that every service sheet is unique and a personalised representation of the deceased.
We produce a vast range of high quality colour service sheets using the latest technology, and will advise you as to how soon we need the details so that everything is ready in time for the funeral.
Bereavement or thank you cards may feature the photo from the service sheets and can be printed for you to send out after the funeral. These cards can be a nice way of acknowledging the support of family and friends following a death.
A memorial book is produced incorprating the signatures of those that attended the service. It is your permanent record of those that gathered, and is bound in a specially designed hand-crafted cover. Additional copies can be provided.
Harbour City Funeral Home offers a range of audiovisual services, for making presentations as part of the funeral service and recording the service as a permanent record.
We can create a slideshow on a DVD to be played through TV screens or project a slideshow of photos to reflect the life of your loved one onto a wall or screen. Such a presentation can be a meaningful way to share more memories and highlights of a life. It can be shown before or during the funeral, accompanied by your own special music. If you simply provide us with your photos, we will create a slideshow for the funeral whether it is in our chapel or at another venue.
We can arrange for an audiovisual recording of the funeral service. This is also a means of sharing the service with relatives or friends who were unable to be there on the day. We can record with our static in-house cameras or utilise the skills of a professional video operator.
A photo Album incorporates all the details outlined in the book of remembrance, plus includes all the photographs produced from the slideshow that were shown at the service. It is your permanent record of all the photographs gathered for the funeral service, bound in a specially designed hard covered book.
The photo album includes a CD at the back with a digital copy of all photographs included. Additional copies can be provided.
