Memorial Dedications

Unveiling the Bronze Memorial

The tradition of placing and dedicating a memorial at the resting place of a loved one is a deep rooted human tradition.

At Randhill Park Cemetery, loved ones can gather together at the gravesite to consecrate the memorial with a dedication ceremony.

The dedication ceremony allows family and friends a special time to gather together and to honor and to remember their loved one.

Typically held around the anniversary of a passing, the dedication helps to mark the passage of time and to reflect and remember.

Marking the Passage of Time

Dedication ceremonies can be held at any time after the memorial has been placed (weather permitting).  Traditionally, services are held around the first anniversary of a passing.  This tradition brings family and friends back to the cemetery around the end of the first year of mourning as grief begins to transform into memory.

Setting a Time and Day

The dedication service must be scheduled officially with the cemetery office in order to ensure that your loved ones will have unobstructed access to the site.  We will work to ensure that there are no other dedications or funeral services too nearby.  Your friends and family deserve to  your own special time to gather, reflect and remember.

To set a dedication date and time, please contact the Dedication Coordinator at 847-255-3520 at least thirty days prior to the desired date.
