Where can I have the service? 

It can be held in a crematorium, graveside, burial ground or any place that you feel is appropriate to say your farewell. (As long as this has been agreed in advance by the venue or land owner).

What can the service include?

As Christina is an independent Civil Celebrant (and not Humanist) this gives you the freedom to include any religious or spiritual readings and hymns you wish.

You are welcome to involve family or friends on the day may like to read a tribute, reading or poem. However, I realise it takes huge courage to do this, so if this is not possible, I am of course happy to read any chosen words on your behalf.

Christina will be able to suggest other ways to further personalise the service for you when she meets with you.
