We will make contact with your preferred minister, or celebrant, or help you to reflect on the various other options that are available. This may be the religious leader from your parish church, synagogue or mosque, or alternatively we have contact with many professional independent and non-denominational celebrants and interfaith ministers.
We can also offer advice to enable families and friends to conduct the ceremony themselves, as there is no law that this has to be overseen by either a funeral director, minister or other official.
A funeral ceremony can be held in a wide variety of places and does not need to be within a religious setting. We have helped families to select venues more relevant to the deceased, such as the family home or garden, the local village hall, woodland settings and the racecourse, the options are endless so please take time to think about what venue would be the most meaningful for the person who has died and the people mourning their death.
What is said about your loved one and how you choose to say goodbye to them will have a lasting impact on how you feel when you look back at their death.
