I am a Humanist Funerals Celebrant, accredited by Humanists UK.
You don’t have to be a Humanist to have a humanist funeral; they are for anyone who believes that we don’t need organised religion to lead a good and valued life.
For every client, I will:
Meet with you and other close family or friends to get a true perspective and understanding of the person who has died
Write a unique and meaningful tribute for that person, checking my facts and perceptions with you at intervals
Devise a structure and flow for the funeral ceremony
Suggest music, poetry and readings that would commemorate their life
Include a pause in the ceremony where mourners with a religious faith can remember the deceased in their own way
Liaise with the Funeral Director and crematorium or burial ground staff to ensure a smooth and flawless ceremony on the day
Provide you with a high-quality presentation copy of the ceremony script the day after the funeral, both hard copy and via email
