The Funeral Cortege

A funeral procession is also called a funeral cortege. It is a slow, solemn and respectful convoy of vehicles, which convoy the deceased and the mourners from the site of the funeral ceremony to the cemetery or graveside.

The person planning and arranging the funeral decides who will be in the car or funeral limousines following the hearse. This is usually family and sometimes close friends. Most of the people going to the funeral will use their own cars and may choose to meet the procession where the service is being held.

Traditionally the funeral cortege procession will leave from the home of the deceased, however, it can leave from the home of a close relative. The family, when arranging the funeral, may decide to leave from the address where people will return to after the funeral. Or, mourners may decide to meet at the place of service.

Bennetts Funeral Directors of Essex Transport Showroom showcases our fleet of classic Rolls Royce limousines and hearses, additionally we are able to provide the very elegant option of our Horse Drawn Carriages.

If you are arranging a funeral and are not sure of protocol, please call us on 01277 210104 to talk things through.
