Funeral directors East Devon  

Historically in the UK there is the tradition of throwing soil or petals onto the coffin, although in recent years there are new graveside customs that have arisen.

 
 

Some people at funerals now release balloons or doves into the sky, or have someone playing music to create an uplifting ending to the occasion or to pay tribute to the deceased by playing a song they enjoyed.

Whatever your plans may be there are generally minimal restrictions, depending on the limitations for the location of the grave.

At Christian funerals the grave is the time for the committal in which the deceased in committed to the ground, and can include prayers or a short reading.
