If you're looking for an alternative to a traditional religious funeral, we offer the option of a civil funeral.

Civil funerals

One of our team of experienced Registrars will meet with you to talk about the person who has died and discuss the type of ceremony you'd like. We can meet you at your home or at one of our register offices.

We'll create a personal tribute and offer a wide selection of suitable readings. You can:

  • include additional pieces with a special significance
  • invite family members and friends to contribute
  • select particular music.

A civil funeral ceremony has no religious content but a simple prayer or hymn can be included if you want. These funerals can take place in any suitable venue such as the crematorium or the graveside but not in a church or other religious building.

Cost of a civil funeral

The cost for a civil funeral is £195.
