• How to Act as a Pallbearer

    Have you been asked to be the pallbearer at a deceased loved one’s funeral? Pallbearers are responsible for lifting and carrying the casket to the cemetery, plot, or hearse throughout the funeral service. Family of the deceased usually ask people who were close to the deceased to take on this honor during this difficult time.

    As you will see in this video, you will need to arrive to the funeral location about half an hour or an hour before the service is scheduled to perform. During this time, you and the other pallbearers will work out the details to make sure everyone is prepared. You will also decide your order regarding carrying the handles on the sides of the casket.
