Some people prefer to choose a funeral arrangement with little of no religious content. The non-religious funeral ceremony tends to focus n celeb rating a loved one’s life, personality and achievements as an alternative way to say goodbye.
Non-religious funerals can be conducted by a Humanist, civil celebrant, by family and or friends. The ceremony tends to focus on the person’s life, personality and their relationships with other people.
A non-religious funeral ceremony can take place at a funeral home, family home, crematorium, or in a non-religious venue such as a community hall or hotel.
The following may be included as part of the ceremony:
- Music by family, friends or by musicians
- Readings – (religious or non-religious)
- A Eulogy
- Speeches of remembrance by family and friends etc.
