A memorial is where friends and family gather over a meal to remember and honor the deceased following the funeral ceremony. Many people think of this gathering as a fitting end to a heavy day.

At Kronen Gaard, we recognize how important it is to have a good system for planning such a gathering. We arrange everything while discreetly cooperating with relatives and friends, so that the bereaved do not have to worry about the practical.

Contact us and we will help you organize a memorial gathering for your family and friends.
