Manners for Funeral Processions

Manners for Funeral Processions

A funeral is a time of sorrow and grief for the departed. The loved ones of the deceased need the love and support they can get. So it is extremely important that one knows the necessary manners that should be followed during a funeral procession:

Arrive early:

Usually, you will receive the rules of precession in the start, so if you get there early you will receive those instructions and follow them thereafter. It also shows that you were really close to the departed as you will be with his or her family in the front.

Turn your lights on:

Turing on the lights on your car indicates that you are part of the funeral procession.

Do not speed:

Usually, all the funeral processions are slow moving, so always maintain the speed of the group. Do not put too much a distance between your car and the one in front of you.

Always stay in line:

Never try to take a shortcut in order to get to the graveyard quickly. Avoid overtaking cars in the procession. This breaks the formation and gives you a bad impression.

Respect the family of the departed:

The family of the departed usually arrive in a special car. Do not try to include yourself there unless asked by them personally.

Speak politely:

It is a very good manner to speak softly and politely with everyone you meet at the funeral. This is not a good time to socialize with an old friend you just saw or shout out to anyone present at the funeral.

Dress appropriately:

It is extremely important that you wear appropriate and decent clothes to a funeral. It is highly advised that you do not wear anything that is vulgar or attention seeker.

Avoid taking pictures:

You should not disrupt the funeral by clicking pictures with the body or with the departed family members and close relatives.

A sympathy card:

The family members of the deceased will highly appreciate your arrival if you bring a sympathy card. A handwritten sympathy card brings out more emotions than a readymade one.

Offer your assistance wherever possible:

You may want to help the family of the departed in some or the other way. Do not feel demotivated when they don’t appreciate your help. Give them their time as they still won’t be over the death of their loved one. Give them a day or two to get back to you.

Bring food:

In some cultures and religion, there is a practice of bringing home cooked food to the family members of the deceased. This keeps them from worrying about preparing their own food in this time of sorrow. It is advisable to bring the food in a disposable container as you don’t have to worry about asking your plates or spoons back.

Cremation serves as a funeral and is a process of reducing a corpse to its natural elements by way of vaporization and combustion. The only things that remains are cremains which consists of skeletal remains and bone fragments. All of this is obtained in form of fine powder.

It can be described as a funeral without the body actually present there. The cremation takes place within two or three days of the death and the ceremony takes place sometime after the cremation, which can be a week or even a month.

Methods of scattering the ashes:


It is simply tossing the remains in the wind, usually downwards. It can be a group activity where everyone takes chance to scatter the ashes.


This involves digging a hole in the earth and pouring the ashes into it and covering it again with soil.


In this method, ashes are scattered on loose soil and then a ground is raked. This is only done in a scattering garden under the supervision of the funeral director.
