The Funeral Service is conducted as it is found in the Orthodox Sacramentary Book (Εὐχολόγιον). After the Service the Priest escorts the casket to the Cemetery where he repeats the Trisagion. At the conclusion he pours oil and sand on the departed one as designated in the Sacramentary Book.
The evening before the Funeral, the Priest goes to the Funeral Home where he does the Trisagion service over the departed one.
