Funeral Etiquette Tips

If you’re planning to attend a funeral in Detroit, there are certain rules of etiquette you should follow during the funeral services. First, always arrive at funeral homes on time or a little early. Dress appropriately for the occasion. It’s generally best to wear conservative, somber clothing in dark colors. You may also wish to send a contribution to the decedent’s favorite charity or send some flowers to the funeral home. Remember to turn off your cellphone upon arriving at the church or cemetery.
