Humanist Funerals

Humanist & non-religious funeral services are becoming more common. Most services are lead by a master of ceremonies. This may be a member of the family, a close friend or associate or a trained celebrant. The format is typically secular but may frequently contain religious content. The focus of the ceremony is usually a celebration of the deceased life. This may include contributions from relatives, friends and colleagues.

  • Introduction and welcome
  • A short summary of the deceased life and achievements
  • Reflective contributions from others
  • Various spiritual or religious readings
  • Final farewell sequence

All of these sections are usually separated by relevant music or singing. This can be live or recorded pieces. Further detail can be added by way of audio visual content. A ceremony usually lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.
