If you’re planning a funeral while in lockdown, there are many things you will need to think about. What are the latest restrictions on numbers of mourners allowed to attend? Should you live stream the funeral? How can the ceremony be personalised? Humanist funeral celebrant Adele Chaplin has created a list of five things to consider.
Humanist funerals and memorials are non-religious ceremonies that support family and friends to mourn and to celebrate the person who has died. They focus on the life they led, the relationships they forged, and the legacy they left. They are based on the humanist perspective that every life is individual and valuable.
Funerals conducted by humanist celebrants are both a celebration of a life and a dignified, personal farewell. They’re the perfect option for families who want a sincere, personal reflection on the life of their loved one.
