Humanist and Non-Religious Funerals

15 May 2014 10:00 - 13:00

The death of anyone we have known and loved is no less sad, shocking or painful for those who live without religion.

More Info

A funeral director is most likely to deal with the practical arrangements of a funeral, but we are all entitled to specify the kind of funeral ceremony we want, be it a burial or cremation.

A Humanist funeral ceremony will:

  • focus on the person who has died
  • allow relatives and friends to express their feelings and to share their memories
  • have warmth and sincerity: many people find them helpful and are pleased to have provided a ceremony their loved ones would have wanted
  • celebrate the life of the person who has died
  • be more appropriate for those who have lived without religion

We are accredited Funeral Celebrants with the British Humanist Association. Friendly, trained, experienced and insured, we are sensitive to your wishes, yet ready to give clear guidance and to answer your questions.


Come and have a chat with us and find out more, we would be delighted to meet you and you may be pleasantly surprised.
