 Rabbi Scheinerman's Home Page - Yahrzeit
When the yahrzeit falls on Shabbat, the yahrzeit candle should be lit prior to lighting Shabbat candles, since the lighting of Shabbat candles initiates Shabbat and no flame may be lit after that until Shabbat ends.
Yahrzeit candles, which can be purchased in most supermarkets, are designed to burn more than 24 hours so they will remain burning throughout the yahrzeit.
Since lighting a yahrzeit candle is a minhag (custom) and not a matter of halakhah (law) there is no reason to object to these, though I have a sense that something is loss in substituting an electric bulb for a geuine flame.
