F.A.Q


As a civil funeral celebrant they meet with the family and friends of a person who has passed away.

During the discussion they will put in place an order of service, as well as creating a eulogy or tribute to be read at the funeral. As the celebrant they would usually lead the service, standing at the front and addressing the congregation as well as inviting up anyone you have chosen to partake in offering readings, prayers or music.

The main role as a celebrant is to carry out the wishes of the loved one, their family and friends.

A Civil Funeral Ceremony is about celebrating the life and personality of a loved one.

It often takes place at a crematorium or non religious burial site. Sometimes it is a memorial ceremony or burial of ashes after a funeral.

The ceremony can be non-religious or contain religious elements such as hymns, readings or prayers. It can also include elements of different faiths.
