When a loved one dies it is a painful emotional and distressing
time. Family and often close friends are left with the distressing
decision of whether to have a burial or cremation, where will the
ceremony be held and above all who will conduct the ceremony. It is
an emotional and stressful time and we often forget what kind of
funeral we really want.
Every family is different, some prefer a religious service, some
follow cultural traditions and some prefer to go by the personal
wishes of the deceased. Whilst the majority of people still prefer
a religious ceremony, more people are going towards a more personal
ceremony, which can be easily accommodated by a civil funeral
Civil ceremonies are created with the help of civil funeral
celebrants, and personalised to the family and friends wishes.
What is a civil funeral ceremony?
A civil funeral ceremony is a dignified yet formal non-religious
ceremony. The ceremony is appropriate to cremations as well as
burials at a burial ground. It is a personal ceremony to reflect
the private thoughts of the family and friends of the deceased.
Each civil funeral ceremony is completely unique to the
deceased. The Eulogy, which can be delivered by the funeral
celebrant or any of the family / friends, forms a major part of the
ceremony and is created in partnership with the family.
Where can a civil funeral ceremony be held?
A civil funeral ceremony can be held almost anywhere with the
exception of a religious building or church.
Who conducts a civil funeral ceremony?
A professional civil funeral celebrant conducts a civil funeral
