A humanist funeral ceremony is focused on the celebration of the life of a loved one through reflections by family members and friends on the character and qualities of the deceased.
In preparation the Celebrants visit the family to make a detailed plan and to hear the wishes of the family in how they wish to remember their loved one.
Of course the Celebrant can make useful suggestions regarding music and appropriate reading that will honour the deceased.
The funeral ceremony may take place in a funeral home or in the Crematorium depending on the wishes of the family.
A follow up ceremony may be appropriate in the Cemetery.
Ask your Celebrant to outline the most appropriate options
Many people who are aware of their impending death wish to personally meet with a Celebrant to plan their funeral ceremony. Our Celebrants are experienced in having these sensitive discussions and making sure that all details are followed up.
Call our celebrant to discuss.
