A civil ceremony provides a service to families who wish to have a funeral ceremony built around the wishes of the deceased and their family rather than a religion-based “traditional” funeral.
Dignity Funeral Care will dedicate our time to the family to create a service consisting of music and/or poetry readings with special memories for the family, perhaps a hymn and/or prayer and a suitable committal.
With the family’s help, we will write a tribute to the deceased telling his/her “life story” and relate experiences and qualities to capture the essence and enduring spirit of the deceased. When all this is in place, we will then conduct the ceremony at our funeral home, a crematorium or other suitable venue chosen by the family which will be followed by burial or cremation.
After the ceremony, a copy of the tribute is given to the family to keep.
