Abstract<strong>The burial service</strong><br /> The goal of this study is to indicate that the burialservice is not only the concern of the family, but also that of the church - it is a church-family concern. Biblical and historical data for the greater part confirm this statement. The Church Reformers considered the burial service in principal as a church matter. From the point of view that the burial service is a church-family matter, the church has the responsibility to define the burial service in respect of practical-theological guidelines whilst also taking the needs of the family into consideration.
