Goodbyes at the graveside

For funerals where the family of the deceased choose to bury their loved one, there is the opportunity to say goodbye at the graveside.

After the funeral service, the coffin will be taken to the grave where it will be laid to rest.

At this time there is a custom of throwing flowers or soil on top of the coffin as an act of farewell.

For all of the funerals we plan we create a page on our website which includes all the details about the services and reception/wake. These pages also list whether the family has requested anything specific for goodbyes at the graveside. You can see a list of all current funerals here.

If you have any questions about attending one of the funerals we’re planning, you can call us on 01476 594422
