Do you want to conduct your own commemorative ceremony, for Anzac Day, Remembrance Day or a significant anniversary? Here you will find information on how to run a commemorative event, and the music files to support a ceremony. A commemorative ceremony should always be conducted in a solemn and dignified manner.
This is a general outline for a commemorative ceremony.

To support community-based commemorative ceremonies the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) provides a free CD of Music for a Commemorative Ceremony.
