A public memorial service for Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, who died just one day apart on Dec. 27 and 28, will be held on March 25, Reynolds' son, Todd Fisher, announced Friday (Jan. 27).

The memorial is set to take place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park -- Hollywood Hills in the Court of Freedom, Todd posted on his production company's official site. Guests are welcome to visit the final resting place of the late mother-daughter duo directly following the service, which is planned for 1 p.m. Though the invitation is open to the public, seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

"We will be celebrating their lives with friends, family members, and the people who loved them, you. The service will begin at 1:00 PM and immediately afterwards, those who want to walk to their final resting place are welcome to do so," reads Todd's statement. "There are a limited number of seats available, and it will be on a first come first come, first seated basis. There will be room for overflow in the huge lobby as well as the outside with screens to watch and hear the service."

A private joint memorial for Reynolds and Fisher, which was attended by close family and friends, took place earlier this month on Jan. 5.
