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)
  • Poetry
  • A Eulogy
  • Speeches of remembrance by family and friends etc.
