Definition

a group or line of people attending a special ceremony especially a funeral, parade, cavalcade, procession, escort, caravan, convoy, entourage, column, attendants

Example

Also known as a funeral cortege, a traditional funeral procession will begin at the funeral home or at the home of the person who has passed away. It can sometimes include two stages; this is often the case if the funeral service and the committal are being held at separate venues.

Funeral directors often lead the cortege on foot for a short distance before getting into the hearse. Upon arrival at the place of worship, they will lead the cortege on foot once more.
