The purpose of research is to determine the ways in which funeral customs and rituals, as traditional forms of symbolic behavior, manifest themselves within the explored culture, what dimensions they encompass and to what extent they continue to be practiced. The text is divided into the following thematic units: preparation for death (preparation of clothes and accessories for burial, anointing of the sick and forgiveness), omens of death, customs after death (actions at the time of death, the announcement and notification of death, dressing the deceased and getting the deceased ready for the funeral, coffin-making, grave goods placed inside coffins, vigil, final farewell), funeral (funeral procession, burial customs, grave goods, graves of marginal social groups, tombstones), customs after the funeral (Daća, Mass for the deceased, visiting the grave after the funeral, mourning, All Saints' Day) and beliefs related to the deceased's soul.
