  • Gathering family & friends at a funeral service is an important part of the grieving process. It allows people the opportunity to stop, remember and celebrate the life of the person that has passed.
  • It is also an important way to show our respect and support for family & friends who have lost the loved one.
  • The service itself can be as private or as public as you want it to be. From simple reflective prayers, music and a few words to a public Church Mass – it is up to you.
  • Yes, there are costs associated with burial i.e. purchasing a plot, a memorial plaque or headstone, which are not required for cremation. Costs can vary for each cemetery or crematorium.

Attending the funeral allows them the opportunity to help them understand the finality of death and deal with it. Some children seem to cope with grief better that many adults – but each person, adult or child will respond differently.
