Graveside Service:

This service is held at the cemetery. A minister is present along with the funeral director. The body is transported by the funeral home. Music, poems and other reading can be included.

Memorial Service:

The body is usually not present at a memorial service. The family may also request the body be present. Poems, music and personal tributes are given.
