Funeral Mass, step by step?

Hi. I’m wondering if anyone can point me to an online article that describes, step by step, the elements of a funeral Mass. I’ve been able to piece together most of it with the help of Google, but certain elements differ, probably due to regional differences.

Thank you.

We use the booklet Through Death to Life by Joseph Champlin. We have them available for parishioners to use.

You can get the booklet on Amazon or through other sellers, Catholic supply stores, etc.

Thank you, @1ke. The book looks perfect. Already ordered.

At the parish office, we give this book to those planning funerals, and encourage people to plan their funeral far in advance. You do not want your family angushing over which reading or did he like that song.
