Graveside Service for Cremation

In many ways,  a graveside burial service is quite similar to a traditional funeral.  The key that rather than holding the remembrance service at a church or funeral home, the entire service takes place at the cemetery.  A graveside service can also be held after a traditional funeral service or prior to a memorial service.

How to Plan a Graveside Service

Whether the graveside service is going to be accompanied with another service or is a standalone event, the process of planning a is quite similar.  Much like a  funeral, an often led by a designated officiant religious leaders like a reverend or priest.

The first step in planning a burial service is to select a cemetery.  Depending on how you plan to care for the remains, there are many different locations within a cemetery to choose from.  The available spaces include graves,  a mausoleum crypt, columbarium niche or scattering garden. Even if your loved one cremated, burial and a graveside services for cremation are possible.

The second part of planning a graveside service is planning the service.  This is when you arrange for an officiant or someone to lead the burial service. You Should select pallbearers and ask  people if they would like to be a part of the service. Once this is done, you can select what readings or prayers will be said as well as who will deliver the eulogy.

The third part of planning a graveside service is inviting guests. Once the details have been arranged, you can start providing guests with the service information and other things they need to know.
