What Should You Expect of Committal or Graveside Burial?

Unlike most traditional funerals in the UK, a committal burial or a graveside funeral does not have a service that is held in a venue beforehand. The entire service is given at the side of the grave prior to the interment of the coffin or casket. For some, there are religious reasons to have a committal ceremony at the graveside rather than to use a church or another place of worship before the burial. However, at Newrest Funerals, we can also help to arrange secular graveside funerals, too. It all depends on your personal preferences and faith, of course.

Typically, graveside funerals and committals will be relatively short services. Most are around 20 minutes long but they may take as long as half an hour. Sometimes a religious minister will run the service but this is not a prerequisite and we can advise you of the best way to arrange whatever sort of graveside committal you would like. You will need to choose a suitable burial site for the type of service you would like, however. This might be a graveyard, a cemetery or even a green burial site where the accent will be on an ecologically conscious ceremony.

Although music may be a feature of a graveside funeral, you need to bear in mind that the service will be conducted outside. This may mean planning for bad weather, of course, as well as in public sites, such as local authority run cemeteries, the potential for the presence of other people in the vicinity of the service.
