Etiquette at a Funeral
Today, funerals range from traditional to informal but a few thoughts around etiquette have remained the same. For example, unless the obituary states that a funeral is a private service you should feel welcome to go. Arrive early to avoid delaying the service or trying to find a seat after the ceremony has begun. Turn mobile phones off and resist chatting to those beside you at inappropriate times. Don’t feel guilty if you are crying at a funeral, crying is healthy and those around you will be supportive. For more information explore our resources below.
