Burials are a more traditional approach and can help bring closure for grieving families.
The burial or graveside service, can either precede or follow the memorial service. It can be a private service for immediate family or open to all. Held beside the grave and led by a pastor or celebrant, it may include the placing flowers or scattering of earth on the coffin.
This option offers the permanency of a gravesite for families to return to visit and leave flowers. This can help with the grieving process as it may allow the mourning family to feel more connected to their loved one.
