Celebration of Life: Committal Service - Part 3 | Funeral Pre-Planner, Kat Downey
There are several ways to celebrate the life of a deceased loved one. In part 1 of this blog I mentioned that a funeral service means that the body of the deceased is present at the service. In part 2 I mentioned that at a memorial service the body is not present. Now, I will explain what a Committal Service is and how it is different from the other two services. A committal service may be the last step in a funeral or memorial service. Alternatively a committal service could be a standalone celebration of life.
