Closed Casket

Closed Casket

Sometimes families choose a closed casket service to celebrate the life of their loved one. This may be due to cultural or religious beliefs that value a closed casket out of respect for the deceased. Sometimes families will opt for a closed casket to protect the privacy and dignity of their loved ones, such as when the deceased endured a long illness or if they may have been in an accident. A closed casket ceremony can still offer family and friends the opportunity to honour and pray over their loved one. Prairie Rose can guide you through detailed selections such as a funeral spray, photographs, memory boards, and more to celebrate the life and presence of your loved one.
