Choosing the Type of Funeral

One of the first decisions to make

The first decision to be made for any funeral service is whether it is going to be a burial or a cremation. You will also need to decide where the service is to be held. This may be at a church or place of worship, at a crematorium, at the graveside or somewhere else. In the case of cremation there can be a service at a church combined with a shorter service at the crematorium chapel.
