Humanist & Civil Funerals
Funerals have become increasingly personalised over the last five years with the rise in popularity of humanist and civil ceremonies.
More often than not, a humanist or civil ceremony is held at a crematorium offering families the opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one exactly as they wish to. This flexibility is the deciding factor for many people that don’t have strong religious ties, or are seeking a non-religious ceremony.
When you book a crematorium service, you can celebrate the life of a loved one in any way that you see fit – as long as it’s not illegal or dangerous. If for example you wanted to re-arrange the chapel, bring pets to the service, or play non-stop music – Thornhill Crematorium can accommodate your wishes.
The crematorium also provides the technical capabilities to deliver audio-visual tributes and webcast the entire service to people that cannot be present on the day so it is increasingly popular with geographically dispersed families.
For those seeking an alternative to the crematorium – natural burial and other service sites are available.
