When the service has ended, the funeral director will direct the pallbearers to guide the casket from the church, followed directly by family members. The casket will then be placed into the funeral coach and a funeral procession will go from the church to the cemetery.
At the cemetery, the casket bearers will remove the casket from the funeral coach and place the casket upon the lowering device that has been set upon the grave. When family and friends have gathered around the graveside, final words will be said, and the service is complete.
The casket will not be lowered until everyone has left the cemetery, except for a member of the funeral home staff who will stay until this has been completed. This would conclude the interment. If a luncheon has been arranged, family and friends would then proceed to the luncheon.
Hulke Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services will also help you choose a monument or marker for the gravesite and what you want to have engraved.
