About Registry Books

When you choose a funeral guest book from Perfect Memorials, you'll have a special memento that honors your departed loved one. These registry books provide space to enter details about the deceased, as well as the funeral service and vigil, and a place for visitors to leave their own messages. Several different styles and designs are available, including binder options so that you can add or rearrange pages.

By placing a memorial guest book in a convenient location at a funeral, wake, or memorial service, you allow visitors to pay their respects to the deceased and his or her family. These books include multiple lined pages so that guests can sign their names to let the family know that they visited. Many people also choose to leave a brief message of support, write a poem or quote, or share a memory of the deceased. After the funeral, the memorial book can be kept by a spouse or other family member as a way to remember how much the departed was loved.

Cover Options

You have several options when it comes to the cover of your funeral guest book, including a variety of colors and designs. For a traditional registry book look, you can choose between a burgundy, ivory, or navy cover with a classic gold scroll design along one side. Other cover designs include tranquil trees, praying hands, and patriotic scenes. If you'd like a more personalized memorial book, there are several options that include a picture frame as part of the cover so that you can add your own photo.

Guest Book Sections

While there may be some variation, most funeral guest books include the following types of pages:

  • Title page
  • Biography of the deceased
  • Services
  • Liturgy of Christian burial
  • Vigil rites
  • Pages for family and friends to leave remembrances
  • Information about music and flowers
  • Newspaper clippings and memos

Memorial books from Perfect Memorials are made so that the pages can be easily removed, allowing you to add new sheets or move the pages around to your preference. You can choose between metal ring binders or comb binders, both of which allow the book to sit open completely flat.

How to select the right size urn

Enter in an approximate weight of your loved one before cremation and we will tell you the size needed.

Choosing the right size urn

Try finding an urn with our easy cremation urn finder.

Choosing the right size urn is easy. For every one pound before cremation you will need 1 cubic inch of volume. For example, a loved one weighing 200 pounds will need an urn that is at least 200 cubic inches or larger. Choosing an urn larger then you need is OK.
