Visual Tributes

From simply having a photograph on display to from playing a video during the service, visual tributes are a way to personalise the day.

There are many ways to personalise a funeral service, visual tributes being one.  Creating a photo slideshow or video tribute helps in sharing the stories and memories of a person’s life.  A.R. Adams are happy to advise and assist with any tributes you need.

Photo Slideshow

Both Southend and Basildon Crematorium have their own display screens and offer families the option of having a photo slideshow played during the service.   This can run in the background whilst the service is taking place or during a time of reflection as music is played.

If you would like to arrange a photo slideshow, A.R. Adams will put in the request with the crematorium, you will be emailed details of where you can upload the photos.  The media company will then put a slideshow together for you to review.  The slideshow will be sent to the crematorium and played at the relevant time during the service.

Framed Portrait

Displaying a photograph of the person at their funeral service is a nice focal point for those attending.  It can add a level of personalisation and is a simple but effective way of creating a visual tribute.

A.R.Adams will receive your framed photograph prior to the day of the service, we can take this to the church or chapel and display it on either the catafalque or on an easel.

The photo will be returned to you after the service and can then also be displayed at the funeral reception.

Video Tribute

Families are able to play video tributes during funeral services held in the crematorium chapels.  Your video can be sent to the crematorium’s media company who will format it and send it to the crematorium to be played at the relevant moment during the service.
