Graveside Funeral Service
Gather with Friends and Family to Say a Final Goodbye to Your Loved One
A graveside service is what many people traditionally envision when thinking about a funeral. Coming together at the graveside with family and friends can be very symbolic and important for some families. Graveside services typically take place outside, however it is possible to hold them in a mausoleum or other covered location. There may be religious or cultural customs you would like to consider when planning a graveside service. You may wish to include different readings, speakers, military tributes, songs, or other meaningful moments. Our experienced team will help you plan a personalized service and can customize a variety of options to best suit your needs. We can also assist with planning for any headstones, monuments, engraved plates or other memorial items to help remember your loved one.
A Final Farewell at the Graveside Held After a Funeral Service
Families frequently choose to hold a funeral service at the funeral chapel or church, but still want a ceremony at the cemetery. A committal service (also called an internment) typically takes place at the graveside after the funeral service. These services can be private with just family members present, or include everyone who attended the funeral service. Attending a committal service and witnessing a loved one being returned to the earth can be incredibly healing and an important part in the grieving process.
