Job Description for Funeral Attendant

Funeral attendants oversee many aspects of a funeral, from collecting the body from the morgue to helping with casket placement and cleaning of the funeral home. Funeral attendants guide mourners to the services, pass out memorial cards, and advise mourners on how to make contributions on behalf of the deceased, as well as help with packaging cremated remains and ensuring that funeral services run smoothly and as planned. Some may also serve as pall bearers, if needed, and will close the casket at the appropriate time during funeral services. They will also load flowers and coffins into the hearse and transport them to the place of burial.
