Religious or secular funerals
As with the issue of cremation or burial, not knowing your wishes as to the type of service you want can cause family distress and even conflict – another sensible reason for making your desires known in advance through a pre-arranged funeral plan from Perfect Choice.
Your funeral director will be able to advise and assist you in this area. In the case of a religious service, you may want to discuss any special requirements such as special readings, hymns or prayers with your vicar or equivalent, or make these known when you set up your funeral plan.
Perhaps you prefer a secular service but still want to ensure that it is dignified and a source of comfort to your loved ones. The British Humanist Association provides advice on non-religious funerals and memorials that celebrate the life of the person commemorated by them.
