Humanist Funeral Services in Great Oakley
A humanist funeral is a non-religious funeral service, used as an honourable farewell and celebration of life. It identifies the sadness of saying goodbye whilst celebrating the life of a loved one.
Humanist funeral ceremonies don’t usually have a set script, this allows the ceremony to be organised in a way that best suits the circumstances or preferences of the family. Some examples of what may be included in a Humanist funeral are:
- Introductory music
- Words of welcome
- The tribute - an outline of life & personality
- Readings of poetry
- Reflection - a few moments for private thoughts in silence or accompanied by music
- Closing words
- Final music
If you want a humanist or non-religious funeral in Great Oakley for your loved one, you can talk to our Great Oakley funeral directors.
Humanist funeral services can take place practically anywhere, besides from religious places of worship. Great Oakley Crematoria or other non-religious venues are popular, as well as forests or meadows for green burials.
Great Oakley Church Burials
Church funerals usually follow an order of service including the gathering, readings and sermon, prayers, commendation, and farewell.
Faiths and beliefs form an essential part of the lives of many people, these beliefs and practices often become more significant at times of crisis and isolation such as when faced with bereavement.
Here at Margaret Rose Funerals, we aim to deliver a culturally sensitive church funeral service by understanding the varying beliefs and values of individuals.
Should you require a church-based burial in Great Oakley you can call us on 01536 601029 to discuss your requirements and find out how we can help.
