Funeral Live Streaming February 8, 2023

During the pandemic, we saw an upsurge in the demand for funeral live streaming – something that can be still be done now restrictions are no longer in place.

What is a Funeral Live Streaming?

Funeral live streaming is when a ceremony is broadcasted via video onto an online platform enabling the funeral service to be seen from any location. Covid saw this need rise and it became a much more normal option . It allows friends and family members who may live abroad, are far away or are in ill health to take part in the process of honouring their loved ones.

Although most will still want to attend in person, there are some advantages to live streamed funerals including increased accessibility, sustainability, and reduced costs of funeral services.

How Does Funeral Live Streaming Work?

You can use public platforms such as Facebook and YouTube for funeral live streaming, although these can not always be secure and may not always be reliable. There are a number of live streaming platforms available that can only be accessed by invited funeral guests. Live streamed events can also be recorded so that people can watch them back at another time if they were in hospital for example.

Many crematoria have a built in live streaming service if needed.

The Sustainability of Funeral Live Streaming

Sustainability is a key advantage of live streaming. The reduction in carbon emissions generated from guests travelling to and from the ceremony is perhaps the main advantage.

The Accessibility of Funeral Live Streaming

Funeral live streaming improves accessibility for people who may not be able to attend the funeral in person. It also means that people do not have to take excessive time from work if they need to travel abroad to a funeral. Additionally, those who struggle with crowds or social situations may be more comfortable to watch from the comfort of their own home. Additionally, some may just find it too difficult emotionally to attend in person, so live streaming helps them to grieve quietly.

The Cost of Livestream Funeral Services

Another advantage of live funeral streaming is that it is one less person attending the funeral in person, which reduces catering costs.
