A Civil Funeral is a funeral steered by the life, wishes and values of the deceased and their family, not by the beliefs or ideology of the person conducting the funeral.
When a loved one dies, it is always a very painful and stressful time and there are, inevitably, decisions to be taken about the funeral. Perhaps the most important question of all is, what kind of funeral do you really want?
Every family is different, and not everyone wants the same type of funeral. The choice may be influenced by religious and cultural traditions, by cost and personal preferences, or by the express wishes of the person who has died.
Whilst the majority of people in the UK still choose a ‘traditional’ stock religious funeral service, an ever increasing number are finding that their personal preferences are best accommodated within a Civil Funeral ceremony – a funeral which can include religious elements or no religious content at all, and also other elements that can be combined to better reflect the wishes of everyone involved and engage the assembled mourners.
With the help and support of a professional Civil Funeral Celebrant, the most appropriate personal, meaningful & professional ceremony for this final act of love and respect can be created.A Civil Funeral ceremony is fitting for either a cremation or burial and can be held at a variety of locations including some churches and religious buildings.
