What to Include in a Funeral Service

Almost all cultures and religions observe funeral rites, recognising that these fulfil many emotional and spiritual needs. As well as being a last act of love and respect towards the person, it also gives family and friends a chance to say goodbye and express their grief.

There are many different types of funerals, and what you choose to include in a funeral service will depend on you and your loved one’s own preferences. We have provided some guides on some of the elements you may choose to include in a funeral.
