There are many variations on the traditional concept of what a funeral is and should be, many believe that a death is not a time of mourning and sorrow but rather a time for celebration of the deceased life and accomplishments.
Humanist Celebrants and Civil Funeral Celebrants are trained to conduct funerals according to the wishes of those closest to the person who has died. They will take their time, beforehand, to gain an in-depth understanding of the true personality of the deceased, in order to pay a profound, honest and befitting tribute without reference to religious observance.
More and more people are becoming aware of the many wonderful ways in which a person and their life can be celebrated. Through attending the services of a civil minister they are witnessing, first hand, these very personal and bespoke ceremonies at the crematorium and realising that they don’t have to be religious. It truly can be a completely personal ceremony that has taken account of your wishes and the wishes of the family and friends.
