Title: What Is Good Funeral Etiquette?-Amazing-Grace-Funerals


1
What Is Good Funeral Etiquette?
Funerals, especially unexpected ones, can be
difficult to decipher for families (or relatives)
of the bereaved and friends alike.
2
Here are some suggestions for those at a loss as
to how to react
  1. Attire
  2. Conduct
  3. Words
  4. Mobile devices
  5. Contributions

3
Attire
The appropriate dress code might vary from
funeral to funeral, but in general, something
that does not intend to draw attraction (or take
it away from families of the bereaved) would
serve as a guide. If still unsure, opt for a
conservative outfit as the safest bet. Keep in
mind that most funerals tend to be formal affairs.
4
Conduct
Since not all family members of the bereaved
would personally know each and every guest that
attends, offer a brief introduction (but not too
long that others are kept waiting) as a form of
courtesy, upon arrival. Avoiding the front row
sections (to make room for families, relatives
and close friends of the bereaved) is also a
thoughtful move. This would also make arrivals of
latecomers less obvious, although reaching early
or at least in time for the service is preferred.
5
Words
While there is a natural need to offer words of
comfort to families of the bereaved, uttering
some of the more common aphorisms, like its
probably for the best, can be viewed as being
insensitive. Words can also be expressed in
writing when signing the condolence book that
AGBC offers as part of its funeral packages. An
additional option to providing words of sympathy
would be to write of how news of the bereavement
was discovered.
6
Mobile devices
It might be common knowledge that selfies at
funerals are disrespectful. However, if used
correctly, photos or videos can be encouraging to
their viewers, what with the recent addition of
paid geofilters for funerals and increasingly
common tribute videos (or recordings of the
service itself). In a nutshell, taking photos or
videos at a service can serve as a visual record
for honouring the bereaved as well as everyone
else who attended the service.
