Institute of Civil Funerals (IoCF)
Whilst the majority of people in the UK still choose either a 'traditional' religious funeral service or a 'Humanist' non-religious funeral service, an increasing number are finding that their personal preferences are easily accommodated within a Civil Funeral Ceremony and therefore a more appropriate choice for them to make.
What is a Civil Funeral?
A Civil Funeral is defined as:
A funeral which is driven by the wishes, beliefs and values of the deceased and their family, and not by the beliefs or ideology of the person conducting the funeral
A Civil Funeral Ceremony can therefore provide an opportunity for you and your staff to create, with the help and support of a professional Civil Funeral Celebrant, the most appropriate and meaningful Ceremony for this final act of love and respect.
Civil Celebrants who have been trained by Civil Ceremonies have undergone rigourous quality assured accredited training.
