Why have a funeral service?
But it was the ancient Egyptians that held ceremonies for the dead that modern funeral service would find its origins in.
Today, funerals can be the traditional religious service in a church, synagogue or mosque, or a celebration of life by gathering friends and family to share memories and support each other.
Many pieces put together help families create an appropriate and meaningful funeral service honouring and remembering a special life.
These might include:
- A viewing
- Selections of music
- Religious verse, poems or meaningful words of comfort
- Eulogy / lifestory or sharing memories
- Symbols & memorabilia
