Keyser Funeral & Cremation Service is going to make sure that the funeral service is organised and handled perfectly. However, there is only so much that we can do. There are things that you need to be aware of, and that’s why we’ve prepared a list of 5 funeral service etiquette tips that you can take into account.
5 Funeral Etiquette Tips
1. Turn Off Your Phone
You want to make sure that there are absolutely no interruptions during the entire funeral service. Even though you might have had the intention of doing so prior to arriving, you might have forgotten about it. You need to make sure that your phone is turned off. There is nothing worse than the loud ring of your phone during the service.
2. Be Punctual
This is particularly important. You need to make sure that you show your respect to the family by arriving on time. There is nothing more important for you during this day and this is something that you should attest by being on time. Say hello to everyone in order to prevent interruptions later on during the funeral service.
3. Dress Code
Unless there are any further instructions given by the funeral home or the one that’s organising the entire thing, you should wear only black clothes. You should have a very presentable appeal and it’s even appropriate to show up with business attire as it’s typically a good outfit choice when it comes to funeral service.
4. Where to Sit
If you are the family of the one who has passed away, you will most likely seat on the front row of the funeral home or of the church. These are for the ones who were family and if you are not amongst the family members, you should make sure to get seated prior to sitting down, if you are unsure where exactly your place is.
5. Paying Your Condolences
When you talk with the family of the person who passed away, you should avoid saying any types of clichés as they might sound a bit offensive. Just say that you are truly sorry for their loss and that’s it. There is no need for some handpicked phrases. Respecting the family is by far the most important thing that you should do and that’s why you need to be very careful, especially when giving your condolences.
