A civil funeral ceremony concentrates on celebrating the life of your loved one.
When a person dies, we acknowledge this passing by holding a funeral, which is the traditional way to honour and pay our last respects. Everyone is an individual, unique, so not all funerals will be the same. A civil funeral ceremony concentrates on celebrating the life of the person.
Let me assist you to choose a meaningful, dignified ceremony, a service to meet your wishes.
Funerals can have different elements in different proportions – expressing the grief of the mourners, but mainly remembering and celebrating the life of the person who has left us.
A growing number of people are finding that a civil funeral ceremony is an appropriate choice for them to make. We don’t have to hold a funeral in a religious setting but the absence of the religious element doesn’t distance us in any way from deep spiritual involvement in the ceremony.
Sometimes our loved one may not have been particularly religious but there is a wish from the family to have some religious content. A service can include words and music of all kinds including a prayer or a hymn (or both) and with a period of silence during which those who wish to pray may do so.
A funeral can, and should be, as unique as the life that is being celebrated.
