Facts About Open Casket Funerals


 
Business,Family & Parenting
Contrary to popular belief, open casket funerals are widely accepted in Asia and the West. It is not a universal practice but hundreds and thousands of families prefer an open casket so they can openly be with their deceased loved one.

Funeral traditions still apply.

- Visitation

Visitations, also known as the wake, can either take place in the deceased person’s house or funeral home where family, friends, and relatives gather to pay their respects. The open casket is placed in the center and at the far end of the house or funeral home. Flower arrangements are placed on both sides of the casket and religious artifacts are displayed in their rightful place. This can be treated as a formal social gathering to honour their loved one’s passing.

- Memorial Service

The memorial service or funeral occurs after the visitation period. It can take place in the same location as the wake or inside the deceased person’s church. In line with tradition, those who mourn for the deceased loved one are going to perform the funeral rituals for their religion. For example, Christians have to repeat prayers in unison, sing hymns, read certain texts from the Bible, listen to the clergy’s sympathetic speech, and eulogies from immediate family members or close relatives and friends.

- Burial Service

The burial service occurs after the memorial service and includes two things: the funeral procession wherein a hearse travels from the location of the memorial service to the burial site and the burial ceremony itself. With the aid of Singapore casket services, a hearse is readily made available and the casket safely arrived at the cemetery without delay.

In some traditions, pallbearers who are commonly male family members, relatives, or friends carry the casket from the church to the hearse. Arriving at the cemetery, the pallbearers carry the casket from the hearse to the place of burying.

Nowadays, Singapore casket services take over and carry the weight off the family’s shoulders. For one last time, the mourners can choose to have the casket open before it is lowered down or it can remain closed for the entire duration of the ceremony.

- Luncheon

After the hard part is over, a luncheon takes place for everyone who went to the visitations, memorial, and burial services. This can be an additional get together and a form of gratitude to those who went out of their way to attend the rituals.

An open casket is only acceptable to some religions.

While some religions allow the practice of open casket funerals, there are those who do not practice it and some who are never likely to experience such a ritual. For instance, the Jews are forbidden from opening the casket and displaying the body of the departed. For them, exposing the body of the deceased person is a sign of disrespect. Nonetheless, open casket is common tradition to Christians, Buddhists, and Mormons. An open casket is not for every dear departed soul.

Open casket funerals may not be possible for persons whose death were due to unnatural causes. The mourners, may it be an adult or child, wouldn’t want to remember their loved one in that manner. Open caskets favour the opposite—the ones who died a natural death.

You can have the casket open or closed depending on your religion. Either way, what matters is being able to pay respects for the passing aways of a loved one.
