Chicago Burial Officiant

Chicago Funeral and Memorial Service Officiant

A Chicago burial officiant’s part will be to preside over the funeral or memorial service.
If you are going to have the funeral or memorial service at a place of worship that is spiritual, the religious leaders there will probably lead the service. Otherwise, anyone can direct a funeral or memorial service.

The Role of a Chicago Burial Officiant

The funeral conductor is traditionally in charge of:

  • Officially eulogizing the person who died
  • Expressing prayers
  • Inviting guests to any occasions after the funeral service (including an entombment or burial at a cemetery, the scattering of ashes or the reception)
  • Generally directing the service

The way to select a Chicago burial conductor or officiant

A funeral can be conducted by whomever you pick. Should your love one’s funeral take place within a place of religious worship, service can be there led by the clergy. However, should the funeral will be held in a funeral home, then a burial officiant should officiate.


The vast majority of clergy will be willing to conduct the funeral for a low or no fee, but it’s usual to provide them with an honorarium. The sum you are offering is completely your responsibility, predicated on what you are able to manage. Moreover, the funeral home you might be working together with can pay this honorarium for you as a cash loan.
