Visual Tributes

From simply having a photograph on display or 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 tributes helps in sharing the stories and memories of a persons life.  A.R. Adams is happy to advise and assist with any tributes you need.

Photo Slideshow

Basildon Crematorium Chapel has its own display screen and in partnership with Wesley media offer families the option of having a photo slideshow played during the service.   This can run in the background whilst the service is happening or during a time of reflection as music is played.

If you would like to arrange a photo slide show, A.R.Adams will put in the request with the crematorium and Wesley Media.  Wesley Media will email you and provide a website address where the photos can be uploaded.  They 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.

At present, this service is only available at Basildon Crematorium.

Video Tribute

Basildon Crematorium are able to play video tributes during funeral services held in their chapel.  Your video can be sent to Wesley media who will format it and send it to the crematorium to be played at the relevant moment 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.
