Elements of a Traditional Funeral Service

Wake or Visitation

This is often called a viewing or a wake. Guests come to pay their respects to the deceased by viewing their casketed body and spending time with the grieving family. A visitation can occur at any time before the funeral service.

Funeral Service

This event commonly takes place at the funeral home, a church, or at the graveside. It can include music, the reading of literary or religious passages, a eulogy, prayer, and the singing of hymns.

Committal Service

If the family plans to bury the deceased, this stage involves the vehicle procession to the cemetery.

Funeral Reception

Many choose to host this post-service gathering (or repast) at a reception hall. This is considered a time to share memories, laughter, and support.

A traditional funeral service has two functions: to acknowledge the death and lifetime achievements of an individual and to bring grieving family members and friends together in support of one another during a difficult time.
