Preparing for the funeral…
Once you’ve decided you would like Christina to conduct your service, she will arrange a convenient time to meet with you so she can gather as much information from you as you are able. If you need help with providing any additional information, Christina is happy to speak to any other relatives and friends, either on the phone or via Skype.
Christina will then write a service for you to create a special Ceremony that honours their life in the fullest sense. If you prefer, you can write the Eulogy, or Christina is very happy to write the entire service including the eulogy.
As part of the service you can choose any readings or music you would like. Having a Civil Funeral Celebrant (in contrast to a Humanist Celebrant) means you have the freedom to include any religious or spiritual readings and any hymns you wish.
Music will be dependent on the location and the crematorium. Most crematoriums have sound systems with a wide range of music to choose from. If you are considering alternative locations such as natural burial grounds then you will need to check with that specific venue of their facilities.
Christina can provide you with choices for readings or you are welcome to choose any that you feel would be most fitting. She can also make other suggestions to help you further personalise the service and will be able to go through those with you when you meet her.
If you have any questions, please do ask Christina.
