Funeral Home FAQ

In Ireland, how long do the remains usually stay in a funeral home

In Ireland, the remains of the deceased typically remain in the funeral home until the day of the funeral. The length of time that the remains are kept at the funeral home may depend on various factors, including the family's preferences, the arrangements for the funeral service, and any necessary preparations that need to be made for the body.

If the family has chosen to have a visitation or wake before the funeral service, the remains may be kept at the funeral home for extended periods to allow friends and family members to pay their respects. In some cases, the remains may be transferred to another location, such as a church or a private home, for visitation or wake.

We have relatives coming from overseas. Can we delay the funeral?

Yes, Brian McElroy Funeral Directors always does our utmost to be as flexible and understanding as possible. The funeral date can be arranged with your extended family's travel arrangements in mind.
