Humanist Funeral Ceremonies

A Humanist funeral is a non-religious ceremony which marks the passing of a loved one by balancing the sadness and the sense of loss with a celebration of the life that was lived. The focus of the ceremony is a celebration of a loved one's life. This is achieved with thoughtful reflections from family, friends and colleagues.

Your accredited Humanist celebrant will guide and support you in choosing the most suitable music, readings and appropriate, well-chosen words and symbolic gestures that encapsulate the life of the person.

"Dear Ealish, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the lovely service you gave for Les today. You gave him such a fantastic send off and I couldn't have done it without you. Every person at the service commented on how great you were and how personal you made the delivery. Many thanks."
