A funeral for a person of the Jehovah's Witness faith lasts approximately 15 to 30 minutes and typically occurs within a week of the person's death. Food is offered to the family before or after the service, and flowers are present in the funeral hall. Funerals take place in a funeral home or in a Kingdom Hall, the place of worship for Jehovah's Witnesses.
