Humanist funerals are becoming increasingly common. For those families who have not attended church and have no religious principles, then a humanist funeral is a good choice. A Humanist funeral recognises no “afterlife”, but instead it celebrates the life of the person who has died.
A Humanist funeral service will concentrate on the the way they lived their life, the family and friends they have made and everything they have left behind.
The Humanist service should not be offensive to those who are religious, but it will focus on the life of the person who has died. Friends and relatives are encouraged to take part in the service, to celebrate and show affection for the person who has died with warmth and sincerity.
Humanist celebrants will be sensitive to your wishes and will arrange and conduct a service entirely to the wishes of the family.
Many bereaved families find the humanist service helpful and draw comfort from knowing they have given their loved one the service they would have wanted.
