Many cremation families choose burial as the final place of rest for their loved one’s cremated remains and desire a final service at the graveside. This committal service is frequently said by families and friends to be the most rewarding experience – and in the case of cremation, is often the only service. It is incumbent upon funeral professionals to assist the family in any way they can in arranging a meaningful cremation graveside service.
To help you, Wilbert has developed an educational video for families called The Value of a Committal Service which you link to your website or download. While this video uses traditional burial images, the messages and ideas are just as pertinent to cremation burials – you might preface this when suggesting to cremation families that they watch it.
We also have a second video that speaks to your role as a funeral professional in emboldening families to “go the distance” in accompanying their dead to their final resting place – watch it here.
