Viewing the deceased

The decision of whether to view the deceased is a personal one and may be determined by religious or cultural beliefs. Some people take comfort from seeing the deceased at rest.

A viewing can also afford family members and friends an opportunity to say a personal farewell, while other people prefer to use a closed coffin that is farewelled at the funeral.

The choice of apparel is also an important part of the viewing process. Often the favourite clothing of the deceased is chosen. However, any personal selection is acceptable or the funeral director can provide a burial garment.

A viewing is a matter of choice, but it is advisable to canvas opinion amongst family members. Private remembrance rooms are available at many funeral homes or some people may wish to have the deceased at home.
