Many times, criminals who are guilty of (especially) the most heinous of acts will have private funerals, if they have one at all; that is, the funeral is open only to those explicitly invited, and often the funeral location will not be announced publicly. Other times, the obituary will run only after the funeral service and burial. This is to keep unwanted intruders from interrupting the service for instance the embittered victim who was personally (or had a close friend or family member) particularly harmed by said deceased criminal's actions from showing up and - in the process of screaming about how the decedent ruined his/her/others' lives - disrupting the service and disrespecting the religious traditions of a funeral. After all, even the most heinous (now-deceased) criminal still likely has family and/or friends who wish to, in the very least, mourn that person in peace and remember him/her how they wish to. In these cases, usually there will be an usher or a police officer standing by the door of the funeral location to stop anyone who does happen to show up uninvited.

Funeral scenes like these also come up - particularly in fiction -- to show how the people the deceased ''thought'' they were close to truly care once they are gone. Either they never truly did or they only cared to a shallow degree; or the funeral is a way to release pent-up frustration, hate, contempt and so forth toward the decedent, emotions that were held in for whatever reason while that person was still living. Other times, these scenes show how much {{Jerkass}}es the family and "friends" can be in general once the deceased is no longer around to remind them when to filter out their open contempt toward the deceased, his family, and/or his life decisions.

* Invoked by [[http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/ Puck Daddy]], ''UglyHill'' had two of these.
** Eli and Hastings grandfather, who had been a racist, mean old bastard, but whom Hastings had begun to bond with shortly before his death. At the funeral, it turned out that he had a massive falling out with his children,
which was the reason for why Eli and Hastings mother (who was otherwise just as racist and nasty as her father) nearly disowned Hastings for visiting him. At the funeral itself, their uncle showed up and told them he'd been working on a loogie the whole way there just so he could spit epically on his fathers corpse. The feeling was mutual, as the {{NHL}} playoffs roll along invites bloggers to write "Eulogies" for will revealed that the recently eliminated teams. And old man only let his house and 500.000 in credit card bills to his children.
** When Eli and Hastings mother herself dies near the end of the strips run, there's a lot of mixed feelings. Hastings was always close to her and is devastated,
while at times Eli hated her due to her racism, manipulative behavior and selfishness.

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Cheers}}'', when an old teammate dies, Coach is asked to give a eulogy; but when Coach finds out that the old friend was sleeping with his wife, he's mortified, and at first, intends to invoke this trope to tell him off. However, it is Subverted because he can't bring himself to do it, and delivers a touching eulogy. However, this leads to one of the guests saying he's ''almost'' ready to forgive the man, indicating that ''his'' wife slept with him, and it is soon revealed that this is true for ''all'' the men attending. A double subversion is risked when they want to hang him in effigy, but Diane, ever the peacemaker, starts singing AmazingGrace, and the subversion stands.

** In the Literature/{{Discworld}} short story "The Sea and Little Fishes", Granny Weatherwax finds herself worrying that this may be her fate, that people would attend her funeral only to make sure she was dead. Her attempts to be nicer to her neighbors cause them to fear something terrible is going to happen.
