A funeral is just like any other ceremony when it comes to individuality. More and more people, even those with religious beliefs, are finding the ‘standard template’ used by most religions to be impersonal. That is why using an independent funeral celebrant and celebrant funerals are growing in popularity.
How does it work?
I will meet with the family a few days before the funeral and have an in-depth discussion about their loved one to build up a picture of the person and deliver a eulogy that totally reflects the life of the person who has died. There is no template involved, this ceremony is totally personalised.
Many people confuse civil celebrants with humanists. In a humanist ceremony, no collective worship is allowed. However, a celebrant funeral can be either secular – with no religion, and contrary to popular belief, can also be spiritual and religious. A civil celebrant can include some traditional religious ceremony if you wish.
So the service can include hymns and psalms or it can include poems and pop songs – or both. This is a service to celebrate the life on an individual and celebrants have no restrictions.
A funeral is the last thing you can do for your loved one – so it’s important to have the service that’s right for you.
You can either book direct by calling or emailing – or you can ask your funeral director to book me on your behalf.
Please feel free to call for an informal chat before you make any decision.,
