Farewells at the graveside

A tradition at a burial funeral

At the burial graveside, many like to perform a final memorable act as a concluding farewall.

Traditionally, there is the custom of throwing soil or petals into the grave – and this act is still commonplace. The Maddock team have noticed a recent trend for new and uplifting graveside rituals.

We’ve seen these range from inspirational live music of all kinds to firework displays, fly-pasts and the release of lanterns, bubbles and doves.

In fact, there are few limits on what you can choose to do, so budget depending – let your imagination run free!

This is a lovely opportunity to create an uplifting and positive end to the service…
