At a Sikh funeral, after cremation, guests are to return to the family's home. Prayers are read and hymns are sung. Neighbors and friends are expected to prepare a meal for the family of the Sikh and afterwards, everyone is expected to bathe, in order to cleanse themselves.

It is always sad to attend the funeral of a baby. The etiquette is the same for a baby's funeral as for an adults. The family may wish to go to the grave site alone and if that is the case the Minister/Priest will announce it at the service.
