One of the best things you can do for yourself after the death of a loved one is to attend their service. This lets you honor their memory and get the closure you need after the loss. If that is something that you want to do but you have never been to a memorial before, it can be tough to know what to expect. To help you through this and to ensure you can get the benefits you need from a memorial service, there are some etiquette tips providers of cremation services in Novato, CA want you to remember. 

You want to wear something appropriate for the service. The last thing you want to do is offend someone with the choice of outfit. You can wear black, which is the traditional color, but you can wear other somber options, too. Avoid anything too bright or anything with big patterns. You also want to not wear anything too informal or too revealing. Wear something you would feel comfortable wearing to a place of worship.  

You need to get to the service on time. This is vital. You do not want to bother other people by getting there late, since it can disrupt the service. If you are someone who tends to be late to things often, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get there before the service starts. That can ensure that you do not have to worry about getting there late. If you do get there late, be sure to take a seat at the back so that you do not bother anyone.  

You also want to silence your phone and other devices. It is essential that you consider that so that you do not have it ring in the middle of the service. If the phone still makes a lot of noise on silent, you want to be sure that you turn it off completely.  

You also want to remember that you want to greet the family and give them your condolences. Do remember, however, that they will be exhausted from planning the services and from the grief of the loss. Do not take up too much of their time when speaking with them because they will have lots of people to greet.
