A Civil funeral is a funeral driven by the wishes, beliefs, and values of the deceased and their family, not by the beliefs or ideology of the person conducting the funeral. It sits between a religious service and a humanist funeral .
The Institute of Civil Funerals
Each service is written to honour and respect the uniqueness and individuality of the person that has died, focusing on what made them special.
A good well rounded and researched funeral tribute has a way of bringing many aspects together which when presented at the service will provide you with memories of a ceremony that encompasses a life that you were a part of.
Family and friends can tribute towards the eulogy in the form of stories that may be retold at the service.
Have you considered having a soloist sing the deceased's favorite song or hymn ? How about a choir made of friends who may have sung together. Why not bring the deceased's dog or dogs to the service to help create memories of the funeral. Funerals are generally of thirty minute duration, sixty minutes can be arranged through your funeral director, allowing greater flexibility of content.
At the conclusion of the service I will provide you the client with a keepsake copy of the funeral script.
Printed on quality paper and secured with ribbon, each presentation copy is personalised.
Further scripts are available at £9.00 per copy
