Humanist Ceremonies

Humanist Ceremonies

Humanist funerals and memorial services offer a personal and fitting way to say goodbye to those who have lived without religion. Many thousands are conducted by our celebrants each year. Humanist funerals bring people together to express sadness at the loss but also to celebrate the life lived. They focus sincerely and affectionately on the person who has died, paying tribute to the connections they made and left behind and the way they lived their life.

National Federation of Funeral Directors

National Federation of Funeral Directors

The National Federation of Funeral Directors is here to help and support the consumer, every bit as much as we're here to help those who work in the industry. Naturally, when you lose someone you love, your priority is to honour them with a wonderful funeral. But contrary to common perception, that doesn't mean you should pay more than you can reasonably and comfortably afford.
