Arrangements: Will the Gurdwara Granthi attend the funeral?

Under all normal circumstances a local Granthi would attend the funeral and conduct the follow up ceremony at the Gurdwara Sahib.

In the extreme circumstances another local Sikh can do the Kirtan Sohila and Anthem Ardas at the crematorium but if a local Granthi is attanding then it is advisable that the Granthi of the Gurdwara Sahib makes arrangements to travel straight to the cremation site to perform the Antem Ardaas. All briefings and attention to detail can take place in advance over the telephone.
