Graveside and Burial Services

funeral burial services in Queens purple flowers photoTraditionally, funeral burial services include:

  • 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 a church, at the grave site, or at our funeral home in Queens. It can include music, the reading of literary or religious passages, a eulogy, prayer, and the singing of hymns.
  • Graveside Service: This stage involves the vehicle procession to the cemetery and the service held at the graveside.
  • 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.

funeral service, whether traditional or more modern (memorial service or celebration-of-life), 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 this difficult time.

Considerations When Planning a Burial Services in Queens

graveside service in queens gravestone imageThere are many things to consider when deciding whether to bury a recently-deceased loved one, or when selecting an affordable burial service in Queens during funeral pre-planning. One of the first decisions you'll need to make involves choosing both the cemetery and the specific place of burial within its grounds. You'll then need to select a casket and possibly a burial vault, as many modern cemeteries require their use. At some point, and this does not have to take place right away, the decision becomes one of selecting the headstone or marker and writing the inscription. A member of our professional staff will be available should you wish to have assistance in making each of these decisions.
