In a home funeral, a family cares for the dead in the home in some capacity before the final burial or cremation. A Home Funeral Guide is an educator who teaches individuals, families, and spiritual communities about what all the options are and what is legal. They are often called upon to lend ideas, to demonstrate techniques, to suggest possibilities, to share knowledge, and to bear witness.
