TRADITIONAL FUNERAL SERVICE VERSUS NON-TRADITIONAL FUNERAL SERVICE

A traditional funeral service, as the name implies, is one in which a contemporary family practices funeral beliefs and customs very similar to those that have been handed down through generations.

Therefore, the funeral tradition that we have come to know from our parents and grandparents has consisted of preparation and casketing of the deceased’s remains for viewing (or for visitation if the casket is to be closed), the viewing of the remains on the evening before the funeral service, and the funeral service performed the next day which is immediately followed by burial in a cemetery.

Over the years, a number of modifications to the traditional funeral service have taken place, the most common being the elimination of the evening viewing in favor of a viewing and funeral on the same day. Another variation of the traditional funeral service is the substitution of cremation following services rather than the deceased’s casketed remains being taken directly to the cemetery for burial. In the latter example, the cremains (cremated remains) are usually buried in cemetery ground at a later date.

Non-traditional funeral services are those in which the deceased’s remains have been cremated prior to any services or visitation. Visitation and services can still take place, but cremains, rather than casketed remains, are usually present. If the family chooses to bury the cremains, they are usually interred immediately following any services.

In any event, we at the DiGiacomo Funeral Home customize every funeral service type to specifically meet the varying situations and particular wishes of our families.
