A graveside service is held at the place of interment: at a grave, mausoleum crypt, or columbarium niche (in the case of cremation). Family and friends gather directly at the cemetery and meet the funeral director at the main entrance (usually wherever the Main Office is). We are then escorted to the gravesite by the cemetery staff. The service in general is usually shorter than a chapel service. There are very little amenities associated with a graveside service, for example, there is no option to display photos or have music as the location cannot accommodate them. Some cemeteries do provide chairs and/or tents – ask your funeral director when making arrangements.
