THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS
Except where it isn't allowed, Mormons prefer to bury their dead rather than cremate them.
Embalming is accepted and allowed and if the dead person has received their temple endowment they will be buried in temple clothes.
Funerals usually take place in an LDS chapel or mortuary under the direction of the bishop of the ward.
Family members usually give the family prayer and dedicate the grave, but are not expected to give a talk.
Because Mormons know that families will be reunited after death, the natural grief at funerals is tempered with certainty and hope of what is to come.
One writer has said that a Mormon funeral is not a final goodbye, but more like the farewell said to someone who is going away for a long time, but who we know we will eventually meet again.
