Memorial Services

Memorial Service.

In recognition of the profoundly meaningful gift that our donors make to science, public health and the greater good, we hold an annual interment memorial service for family members.

Every year we hold a non-denominational ceremony remembering those individuals whose generous gift made it possible for our students to further their education and our faculty to advance the practice of medicine.

This annual ceremony is held at the Skinnerville Cemetery. Family members of those individuals whose cremains are being interred are invited to attend. A reception follows.

About the Interment Site

For those donors who designate that our Anatomical Gift Program inter their ashes, we do so at the Skinnerville Cemetery on UB's North Campus. We encourage family members to consider these grounds a family site and, as such, visit and place flowers anytime.

Viewing the Service Via Zoom or YouTube

Family members will be notified of the date and time of the next service. Those who cannot attend in person will be invited to watch it on Zoom or YouTube.
