One of the first decisions to make
The first decision to be made for any funeral service is whether it is a burial or a cremation. You will also need to decide where the service will be held, this may be at a church or place of worship, at a crematorium, at the graveside or somewhere else. In the case of cremation there can be a service at a church combined with a shorter service at the crematorium chapel.
Whether there will be a burial or a cremation may already have been made by the deceased, this might have been in discussion with family members or in their will
