Non Religious Funerals

Funerals are becoming increasingly more personal in nature. Many of us prefer to have a non religious funeral with music and poems instead of hymns and prayers. Sometimes a more personal funeral is wanted with just a brief prayer at the committal. All our service are bespoke so you can create the personal farewell that reflects the life of your loved one.
