The Memorial Service
In a traditional church setting, the immediate family of the deceased - as at a funeral - sit in the pews at the front right-hand side of the church. They are the last to enter, and the first to leave, and the congregation stand for both their entry and departure.
Conventionally, dress is sombre; dark suits and black ties for men, dark clothes for women. However, if the memorial service is commemorating a long and happy life, it is not necessary to adhere to a strict dress code.
As with a funeral, a full order of service is printed, with the full title of the deceased (including orders and decorations), their dates, and possibly a photograph, on the front cover.
