FAMILY AND FRIENDS PARTICIPATION DURING THE FUNERAL

Family, friends and work colleagues may choose to participate in the funeral ceremony sharing their thoughts and

feelings for your loved one or reading the eulogy, a poem or some other quotation. As emotions can sometimes

take over, we recommend that the officiating minister has a copy of the reading(s) so that the minister or another

friend or family member is able to take over; ensuring special words are not left unsaid.

 

Family or friends can act as bearers throughout the funeral or can hand over to our staff at respective points

during the ceremony. We will give instruction to those participating or even hold a rehearsal for you the day

before.
