The funeral procession

The person arranging the funeral decides who will be in the cars or limousines following the hearse - this is usually family members and sometimes close friends. Most of the people going to the funeral will use their own cars and may choose to meet the procession where the service is being held.

Usually the funeral procession leaves from the home the person who has died.

Unless you have been invited to participate in the funeral procession, it is not advisable to turn up at the house from where the funeral procession will be leaving - the family will not be pleased to see unexpected visitors at this time.
