Civil funeral ceremonies which perfectly reflect your loved one's nature, life and personality

Funeral practices in the UK have undergone remarkable changes in the last few years; there has been a clear shift away from the impersonal, standardised and religiously led funeral services of the past.

Modern funerals allows the grieving family a wider range of options that were unheard of 10 years ago. These modern funerals are often referred to by a number of different terms; non-religious funerals, secular funerals, unaffiliated funerals etc. I am professionally trained to lead all of these types of funeral ceremony and Celebrations of Life.

Most aspects of today’s funeral ceremony come down to personal choice; families may well take an active role in choosing the music and readings and may wish to speak about the person who has passed. The primary task of the professional funeral celebrant nowadays is to assist families in creating a funeral that fully reflects the person’s nature, life and personality.

Civil funerals

Civil Funerals can provide an opportunity to publicly express the different feelings and emotions that well up when a loved one dies; it may well recognise the grief of the family’s loss, maybe his or her understanding of the meaning of life and death but most importantly, provides an opportunity to tell the loved one’s story, provide anecdotes and show the love that still remains.
