Funerals do not have to be conducted by a Minister of Religion, nor by an Atheist or Humanist Officiant. The big advantage of having an Independent Celebrant conduct a funeral for you is that religious and spiritual elements such as hymns, prayers and blessings can be included, or not, as you wish. Independent funerals can be just as dignified, moving and uplifting as any other, if not more so, especially for those who do not wish to have a standard, formalised religious service.
My philosophy is “mourn the death, celebrate the life, comfort the living”. I will sit down with you and discuss every detail of the funeral service. Again, the choice is yours. You can include music, poems, readings: in fact, any form of ceremonial such as release of white doves, lighting of candles and so forth. I will then draft out the Order of Service and my Address or Eulogy for your approval in advance. Between us we will ensure that the funeral service is a dignified and fitting tribute to the deceased and a comfort to family and friends - Chris Foote-Wood
