Hey guys i was thinking. how does the people in your country do the funerals. In Armenia they actually do it this way: there's the Requiem, it's in the deadman's house or something. they come and pay the respect. a lot of flowers and heartbreaking music. the next day is the funerals that happens in the ... yes you're right... graveyard. they rarely take the body to church. They also go there the next day for some reason. after the funeral they go and eat food (binge ) for the name of him then there's the day called "seven" which is the seventh day after the death. they go to the grave, then again have a binge. then "forty" which is the fortieth day. aaaand... a binge!

and so on... there's a "year" and whatnot.
they're also obsessed with binges...

what about you?

In the UK, the coffin is transported in a hearse from the funeral home to the church or crematorium, with family following behind. When the family arrive, it is typical for males to carry the coffin into the church, where it stands behind the vicar. A ceremony then takes place involving some readings (Psalm 23:4 is always read) and hymns are sung. Some family members may give speeches about the character of the deceased and the vicar will give a sermon on death.

After this a curtain goes down over the coffin and the funeral attendees leave the church/chapel and go back to attend the wake. The ashes are then entourred or scattered in the next few days.

I've been to far, far too many funerals lately

Sorry to hear that

As much as I hate funerals, they help to move on so much.

Depends on your religion, mostly.
Christians get greeted at the mortuary for a few days. Then you have the funeral (church, cemetary, coffee & biscuits). It's very sober really.
Atheists mostly get a creamation and then the offspring decides what to do with the ashes (mostly just scatter them over a field or put them in a jar and put them at home or in a wall at the cemetary. Lately you can also get the urn buried in this cool sun-with-sunbeams shaped field)
For others.. dunno, never been to one of em.

My mom once asked me what me n my bro were gonna do with her if she died.
I said "well, we can cremate you and then make some sort of jewelry of the ashes. That'd be cool, because *emotional banter*". She replied "I wish your brother wants to bury me."

I don't care what happens to me, as long as they don't just forget me.
Probably gonna get buried with a tagline that says smth like
"get off my lawn, you damn kids!"

The body is put on display for 3 days for family and friends to see and grieve, reminisce, etc. then bury the body. There's also burial songs and everyone buries the body.

Depends on what the person wanted done/what there was the funding for. My grandma got taken straight from the hospital to the funeral home, where she was cremated, and then we took the ashes and spread them as she wished. When my grandfather died, we did the wake 2 or 3 days after, (where everybody just gathers and talks with the coffin in the room) and the funeral in the church the day after that, and then immediately followed the hearse to the mausoleum, where there was another short ceremony.

I have only been to one funeral in my whole life, my dad´s uncle´s funeral. He was cremated tho, but there was this ceremony at the church where the Priest was talking about his life and what not while showing the urn and then we (they, I don´t sing when I am sad) sang some hymns and we went outside, then his two sons (my dad´s cousins) dropped the urn into a hole and they Priest said some more words and we moved over to a another place where we ate a lot of expensive food and talked a bit more about the deceased and showed our condolences to the closer family members. When you want the deceased to be buried you have no actual law on how long you can mourn before actually putting the coffin in the groun (Denmark) like one friend of my mothers, she kept her mothers body for almost a week in her living room where the family could come and show their respects before actually putting her in a coffin and moving her to the church.

We bury the body and then go to the pub to talk about other family members behind their backs.

they have 2 or 3 days of viewings at the funeral home. the close family of the deceased goes there during the viewing hours and anyone that knew the deceased goes to pay their respects and see the body. alot of times the close family of the deceased all sit/stand in a line and when you go to the viewing, you go down the line and talk to each person. alot of times you wont know everyone thats on the line.

then on the day of the funeral the body is brought to a church and they hold a service. they give an opportunity for family and friends to share things about the deceased. they usually read scripture, sing some hymns, and have some sort of a message.

afterwards, there is a procession to the cemetery. sometimes they request that only family and close friends go to the cemetery, other times everyone is invited. everyone gets in their car and follows the hearse to the cemetery and the whole procession drives really slowly to get there.

at the cemetery, everyone gathers around the grave. the coffin is placed above the hole and the immediate family sits around the coffin. some words are said, the immediate family places flowers ontop of the coffin, then the coffin is lowered into the ground.

then everyone disburses and goes somewhere together and eats a big meal.

ok here's a joke, guys, to lighten the mood a bit... a person dies in his 40s. before dying he asks his wife not to cheat on him, "each time you cheat my body will turn 1 round in my grave."
after a couple of weeks the wife decides to visit her husband. Not being able to find the grave he asks the grounds-keeper where John Sanders is. The grounds keeper answers "which John? the Chopper John?"

that's a local joke and lets see if it'll make sense to you after i translated it haha

Here the requiem is mostly in a church, and then they just bury the person. The most simplistic way. It might depend on religic views how a person gets buried here.

First we go to church and listen to Psalms and stuff like that, then the Priest talks about the dead persons life, and his close ones, and then more Psalms, usually a Psalm that the dead one liked when alive. Then, we get like 4-6 people to carry the casket out from church to the grave. Where we sing a Psalm while lowering the casket into the ground, then we all just stand there for awhile. Then we start all saying stuff like our final goodbyes and flowers onto the casket in the ground. Then the priest throws sand on top and we go eat cake, and food.
#35
In Aus we just stand in a church, or funeral home and listen to the priest and family members talk about the dead person. There's also usually a presentation like a slide show and some music.

Sadly its illegal not to have a funeral in Aus... I want my body incinerated and dumped somewhere. No funeral - they're ridiculously expensive.

In my experience, funerals consist of a 5 minute speech from 1 of the beloved ones and a 3 minute walk around the opened coffin, after which we have coffee, cake, pies, other delicious sweets, soda, beer, other alcoholic beverages, and lot's of dancing on upbeat music.

Good times.
