Funeral Services and Celebrations of Life

What is a Civil Funeral?


More people are choosing to have a civil funeral rather than a religious funeral. This can be because they are not religious or they want more choice and flexibility with the content of the service. A civil funeral is all about reflecting the wishes, beliefs and values of the deceased and their family, rather than those of the person conducting the funeral. A civil funeral may have no religious content at all, or may include hymns and prayers. 

Having to arrange a funeral service for your loved one is one of the last things you can do for them, and you will want more than anything to get it right. Helping you to do that, and creating a service that honours their wishes and beliefs, celebrates their life and gives you, your family and your friends the opportunity to remember them, celebrate them and say goodbye to them.

As a Funeral Celebrant I want to give you complete peace of mind by creating a celebration of the life of the loved one and a loving, meaningful goodbye for you and your loved ones.
