How to Be a Pallbearer

Serving as pallbearer during funeral services is an honor that both men and women might be asked to do. This video explains what first-time pallbearers can expect.

The position of pallbearer is usually fulfilled by individuals who shared a close relationship with the deceased loved one. Those asked to be pallbearers should arrive at the funeral home earlier than the other guests to receive instructions regarding when to assume their duties. In general, pallbearers bear the duty of carrying the casket from the funeral home to the hearse. They might also carry the casket from the transporting vehicle to its final resting place in the cemetery.
