Death may have taken away a person's physical presence, but they will continue to live on in our memories and stories

Humanist Memorial Ceremonies

A humanist memorial ceremony focuses on the person who has died, balancing the sense of loss with a celebration of the person's life, and will typically include suitable readings and music. The celebrant will meet the family to learn as much as possible about the person who has died, so they can lead the ceremony with dignity and warmth.

“My Mum passed away last year. The funeral seemed so small and sad - not what she would have wanted at all. She wanted smiles and songs and no hum drum she said. Our celebrant is helping us to plan a memorial service in Autumn surrounded by her friends and family and it will be a celebration of her life.”
