Religious traditions

Making sense of religion and faith traditions for funerals is no easy task. Customs not only vary between religions, but also between parts of the world, sectors of the same faith, and even among family members.

If you are attending a funeral for someone of another faith, you may feel awkward and uncomfortable if you are not familiar with the traditions and customs. Rather than take a guess, look through the pages ahead or ask the funeral provider. You could also contact family members and/or faith leaders in your community to answer your questions.
