Funeral is the act to bury a deceased person in a cemetery or place of internment.
The standard funeral can take place in two ways:
- In the first situation, the loved one is taken by the funeral parlour assisting with the burial, in a casket to the church or place where the funeral sermon will be conducted.
A sermon or memorial service will be held as tribute to the loved one.
After the sermon or memorial service the mourners will leave to the cemetery where a short service can be held before the actual internment takes place.
After the internment, the mourners will normally move to a venue where refreshments will be served and the mourners will celebrate the life of the deceased.
- In this instance, the mourners will gather at the cemetery or place of internment, have a short sermon and do the actual internment.
After the internment, the mourners will move to the church or venue where the actual sermon or memorial service will be held.
After the service the mourners will move on to a venue where refreshments will be served and the life of the deceased is celebrated.
- Viewing of the loved one can take place prior to the burial or on the day of such burial depending on the religion or tradition of the loved one and the facility where the service takes place.
