Non-Religious Services

Three lighted candlesThis is a funeral service without mention of, or reference to, any form of religion or after-life. It is based around humanist values. It is important to remember though, even if the person who has died may have been agnostic or atheist, there may be other people attending the funeral who have faith and it is considerate to honour both sides accordingly.

If you feel it is appropriate, a short period of quiet reflection can be included within the service to allow those who may have religious beliefs to say a silent prayer.

If the service is conducted at a crematorium then, on request, crosses or other religious symbols can be removed from the chapel before the service.
