Separated By Distance? 3 Reasons To Include A Webcast In Your Loved One's Funeral


If your loved one has passed away and you're making the final arrangements, talk to your funeral director about webcasting the service. Webcasting allows you to broadcast your loved one's funeral via an internet connection. If you're not sure that all family members will be able to participate in the webcast, all they need is a computer and an internet connection. Once the link is set up, your loved ones will be able to join in the funeral service. Here are three ways that a webcast can allow your family to grieve together now that a loved one has passed. 

Allows Funerals During The Pandemic

The current pandemic has required many states to severely curtail public and private gatherings, including funerals. Unfortunately, that means that families are unable to gather together to grieve the passing of loved ones. Because of that, many funeral homes have started offering webcasting as an option to traditional funeral services. Webcasting allows families to remain in their homes while still participating in funeral services. Not only does this service allow you to gather as a family, but it also allows you to safeguard family members who may be at risk for contracting the virus.  

Provides Permanent Keepsake

If your loved one has passed away, creating keepsakes is a way to keep their memory alive. This includes creating keepsakes from their funeral service. Many families put keepsake videos together to memorialize their loved ones, but they often forget to memorialize the funeral service. If you want to make sure that your loved one's funeral is memorialized, consider adding a webcast to the services. The webcast will create a recording of the service, which will provide a permanent keepsake for you and your family. This will include a video of all eulogies, prayers, and talks offered by friends and family members. 

Ensures Family Participation

If your family doesn't live near each other, there may be some members of the family that will need to travel great distances for the funeral. Unfortunately, traveling isn't always an option. There was a time when this would prevent family members from participating in the funeral. But, that's not the case anymore. If you have family members that are unable to attend the funeral, include a webcast of the service. This will allow families with young children or those with medical conditions to join in remembering the life of a loved one who has passed.
