A civil funeral is an alternative to a traditional religious funeral, and enables you to design a personal and individual service that truly reflects and celebrates the life of your loved one.

Civil funerals

One of our experienced, fully trained registrars will meet with you to talk about your loved one and discuss the type of ceremony you'd like, to create a personal tribute to them.

We can meet you at your home or at one of our register offices and offer a wide selection of readings. You can:

  • include additional pieces with a special significance
  • invite family members and friends to contribute
  • select particular music
  • a prayer or hymn can be included if you want.

A civil funeral ceremony can take place in any suitable venue such as the crematorium or the graveside but not in a church or other religious building.

We understand that this is a difficult time for family and friends, and it's important to have a funeral service that reflects the person who has died. Our celebrants will use their experience and training to listen, understand and help you arrange the perfect service.

Cost of a civil funeral

The cost for a civil funeral is £195.
