I recall going to several JW funerals as a small kid where the coffin had been brought into the hall, a service that must have been provided by
the funeral parlour. However, since the early 80s, I have never again attended a JW funeral with a casket present in the hall. Has anyone?
Did the WTS change some formal policy about this? Is there now an "anti-coffin" policy in effect for JW funerals?
Certainly vitually all other religious funerals I have attended had the casket brought to the church, and
either opened or closed during the eulogy.
