Humanist funeral and memorial ceremonies

Humanist funerals and memorials are non-religious ceremonies that support family and friends to mourn and to celebrate the person who has died. They focus on the life they led, the relationships they forged, and the legacy they left. They are based on the perspective that every life is individual and valuable.

Ceremonies are both a celebration of a life and a dignified, personal farewell. They’re the perfect option for families who want a sincere, personal reflection on the life of their loved one. This can be especially important if the person who died wasn’t particularly religious, meaning a religious funeral could feel inauthentic and not true to who they were in life.

Humanist funerals and memorial services offer a personal and fitting way to support families in saying goodbye to those who have lived without religion. Many thousands are conducted each year.

In this incredibly challenging time of Covid restrictions, where numbers attending a funeral are limited, the bespoke nature of what we offer allows you the choice to have a small ceremony now, but plan a fuller celebration of life memorial for when we can all mix and mingle more freely again.

Arranging a funeral

While a funeral director is the professional most likely to deal with the practical arrangements of a funeral, if you prefer to contact me directly, that’s absolutely fine too.  Either way, what type of ceremony you choose is entirely up to you.
