Q. What should I wear to a funeral?

Most people dress formally when attending a funeral, and usually in dark colours. This is only intended as a guide though. We do find sometimes mourners attend in work clothing, particularly if the funeral is for a work colleague.

On occasion the family request no dark clothing or may even request bright colours to be worn. This is however rare and would usually be requested by the family in an intimation or through word of mouth.
