A civil ceremony is a service conducted around the wishes of the deceased and their family rather than a religion-based “traditional” funeral.
At Dignity Funeral Care we 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 can help 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.
We are delighted that a member of our team, Geraldine Bane, is now a qualified Funeral Celebrant, having completed her training with the IIOC (Irish Institute of Celebrants). It enables us to offer the bereaved, the opportunity to work with Geraldine and create a funeral service for their loved one that reflects the essence and enduring spirit of the deceased. The ceremony can be conducted at the Dignity funeral home, at the crematorium, or another suitable venue.
