Trained by experienced funeral celebrants who are also funeral directors, they know what you, the funeral director, require of them e.g. strict time boundaries, good liaison, professionalism and empathy in dealings with families, smart appearance as well as an excellent and individual funeral.
Over two thirds of people in the UK are neither formally religious nor humanist, but these are still by far the most common alternatives given for leading a funeral ceremony. Most people have their own personal mix of beliefs and values. Everyone is different. Name of celebrant will work closely with the family to design an individual funeral, whether spiritual, agnostic, religious or atheist.
