Funeral Procession

A funeral procession refers to a series of vehicles or people that follow a Hearse as it transports the body of a deceased person from a Funeral Home to its final resting place, like a Cemetery or Crematorium.

The procession typically includes family and friends and follows a specific route. To indicate to outsiders that they are traveling in a group, the procession may use funeral flags, escorts, or other symbolic elements. In some cultures, the funeral procession may involve even more elaborate customs and traditions.

During the procession, participants often display various expressions of mourning, such as wearing black clothing, carrying flowers or wreaths, and observing moments of silence or prayer.
