Farewells at the graveside

A burial funeral tradition

For the concluding farewell at the burial graveside, most people like to perform a memorable final act.

The traditional custom of throwing soil or petals into the grave is still commonplace. However, here at Craven, we’ve recently noticed a trend for new and uplifting graveside rituals.

These range from inspirational live music of all kinds to firework displays, fly-pasts and the release of balloons (often signed by friends and family), bubbles and doves.

In fact, there are few limits on what you can choose to do, apart from your budget and your imagination.

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