The minister or celebrant

If the service is in a church, then it is normal and the correct proceedure to ask the minister or priest in charge to officiate at the service.

 

At a crematorium or cemetery however, there are no restrictions on who is able to conduct the funeral service. If there is a particular minister or person that is required then we will contact them and arrange for them to take the service, but you must be prepared to have the service whenever that person is available.

 

If there is no preferred minister or priest to officiate at the funeral service then on listening to your thoughts and expectations we can arrange for a suitable religious minister on your behalf.

 

For those who are non-religious we can arrange for a poignant ceremony conducted by a civil celebrant or someone from the British Humanist Society.

 

Sometimes no formal ceremony is requested. If this is the case, may we suggest that some appropiate music is played whilst mourners sit for reflection, or alternatively have several different pieces of music played inter-dispersed with tributes or anecdotes read by family or friends.
