“Today’s funeral consumer has a greater interest than the generation before in accompanying their dead to that final resting place. The importance of what we can provide for people has never been more significant.”
- Patrick E. Lynch, Past-President of NFDA
(excerpted from video The Importance of Graveside Service)
The importance of graveside service cannot be overstated. In an independent study commissioned by Wilbert Funeral Services, 78% of consumers cited a graveside service as equally or more important than the service conducted at the funeral home or chapel.
Funeral professionals should facilitate families and assist them in planning a tailored graveside committal service for their loved one. 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.
