Memorial Services

We offer you our deepest sympathy for your loss. We hope that this will be a time of remembrance and thanksgiving for you and your family.

Planning a memorial service can be both challenging and rewarding. We will do our best to help make the memorial service for your loved one as meaningful and appropriate as possible.

The Memorial Garden at First Unitarian Church
A section of the Bradley Garden, directly behind the Schweitzer Room at First Unitarian Church, has been designated as a Memorial Garden. The ivy-covered plot bordering on the flagstone terrace is available to members of the church and their immediate families for the interment of ashes.

A bronze tablet on the church building adjacent to the garden contains individual bronze plates bearing the names and dates of birth and death for each person whose ashes are interred in the Memorial Garden.

Making Arrangements
Our Senior Minister, Rev. David Herndon can usually be flexible in setting a date and time for a memorial service. If Rev. Herndon is not available, other Unitarian Universalist ministers in the greater Pittsburgh area may be able to conduct the service.

If you choose to have a memorial or funeral service at First Unitarian Church, please call the church office at (412) 621-8008 and speak with Business Manager Rita Gates or Program Assistant at extension 107

Come to be moved and held in mutual embrace. Come and be made whole.
