Family and friends gather at the grave following the funeral service to have earth burial of a casket or an urn. A minister, family member, or friend may offer scripture, poems, or personal tributes. The length of service can be determined by how much or how little you wish to include.
If no monument or marker is present at the graveside the funeral staff will leave a temporary plastic marker with names and dates inscribed.
Weather is always major factor that should be considered when planning a graveside service.
