The Tombstone Unveiling Ceremony in African Culture

Even though a funeral is held for deceased loved ones, it is the tombstone unveiling ceremony that lends an even bigger significance to the African culture.  The main reason for this being the case can be attributed to the fact that the unveiling of a tombstone aims to honour the memory of deceased loved ones and as such celebrate their life after death.  Although the main focus of a tombstone unveiling ceremony is, as the name suggests, the physical unveiling of the tombstone, it does also incorporate numerous other activities, both preceding and following the actual unveiling.

At Tombco in Gauteng, we can help you with the following tombstones:

For example, a tombstone unveiling ceremony usually begins by holding a short church service at a family member’s home where a priest delivers a suitable sermon; this is followed by singing some church hymns.  Afterwards some more singing takes place at the graveyard itself.  After some time, the actual tombstone unveiling ceremony can take place.  Every aspect related to the physical unveiling of the tombstone is done according to tradition.  It is important not to deviate from the way it is usually performed, including making sure that the tombstone stays fully covered, not allowing anyone attending the tombstone unveiling ceremony to take a peek at it beforehand.

Immediately preceding the unveiling of a tombstone, some close family members read an appropriate scripture from the Bible, after which another family member removes the garment from the tombstone and reads the inscription on it for everyone attending the tombstone unveiling ceremony to hear.  When this part of the tombstone unveiling ceremony is completed, the priest prays one more time, after which s/he gives the opportunity for anyone else to pray for the deceased loved one as well.  Even more praise and worship, directed by senior members of the family follow where after the tombstone unveiling ceremony concludes by means of a brunch and a big party.
