Humanist & Civil Funerals
Sometimes known as a ‘civil’, humanist funerals are considered non-religious funerals. They are often highly personalised services led by a celebrant, or sometimes a family member or friend.
Frequently, the music and readings are deeply meaningful and chosen to either fulfill the wishes of the deceased or by the next of kin to reflect the life of their loved one.
Humanist funeral services can be held at a crematorium, cemetery, or natural burial site but realistically you can hold a humanist ceremony almost anywhere. The most important thing to remember is that there is no right or wrong way to conduct a humanist funeral as its down to the personal wishes of your loved one
If you do choose to hold your service at a crematorium or cemetery, ourselves or the venue will be able to guide you through a basic structure of the ceremony and you will be able to personalise each step of that service.
