WHY CHOOSE A CIVIL FUNERAL CELEBRANT?
Did you know that a funeral does not have to be conducted by a religious minister?
Many people these days prefer to make use of a celebrant to deliver their funeral ceremony especially when the loved one held no strong religious beliefs.
I will ensure that the funeral ceremony is properly constructed and delivered, with a formal committal of the coffin; and like a Humanist Celebrant I can make the ceremony completely non-religious if that is your wish.
However, as a Civil Funeral Celebrant I can also include hymns and prayers in the ceremony and any other religious element chosen by you. This is something a Humanist Celebrant will not do.
My only concern is to help you create the funeral you want.
There is no law governing the location and content of a funeral ceremony. The law only requires you to dispose of the body appropriately.
So if you want your loved one's funeral ceremony in a village hall that's fine. If you want it in your front room, that's also fine. If you want to write messages on the coffin, light candles, tell jokes or sing songs that is all just fine. It's entirely up to you.
The only restriction you may find is with the length of time available if you opt to have the ceremony at a crematorium.
I can advise you on all of these matters and help you put together the funeral ceremony you want.
