Choosing a ceremony based on your cultural or religious traditions

What are the different types of ceremonies?

Traditional funeral
In keeping with cultural or religious traditions, a traditional funeral consists of the presentation of the body in a casket in a parlour, followed by a ceremony in a church, after which the deceased is taken to the cemetery for burial in the ground or in a crypt.

Depending on the family, the funeral rite can also be celebrated in the chapel of the funeral complex, followed by burial or placing in a crypt in the cemetery.

Traditional funeral followed by cremation
Identical to a traditional funeral, except that the body, after the funeral ceremony, is taken to a crematorium for cremation. The ashes collected will then be buried in a family plot, deposited in a columbarium niche, or given to the family to do with as they see fit.

Funeral in the presence of the ashes
This type of funeral leaves a great deal of latitude to families in the choice and execution of the funeral. See "Cremation" for more details.
