Religious Funeral

Religious funeral ceremonies are usually led by religious leaders appointed by a particular faith, so most Celebrants prefer to create a religious theme for the ceremony.

You should expect that whoever conducts this type of funeral service will be dedicated to their own beliefs and may wish to follow certain readings, prayers, and words of faith, hope, and love.

We’ve worked with people of various faiths, including Christians, Jews, Sikhs, Hindus, Muslims, and Buddhists. Typically, you can discuss the specifics of the service with the appropriate religious leader, who may be a Priest, Vicar, Rector, Reader, Pastor, Elder, Rabbi, Granthi, Pandit, Imam, or Bhikshu, and he or she will advise you on how to personalise the content within the faith’s parameters.

If the funeral ceremony is to be held in a religious building, you may have limited options for who leads the ceremony, and the Celebrant will need to be consulted about the type and style of music that will be played, as well as what will be said and done during the funeral ceremony. Most religious Celebrants will gladly include a eulogy in the service, which you, another family member or friend, or even the Celebrant, can read.

Most religious Celebrants will meet with you (subject to certain practicalities) to discuss the specific content of the funeral ceremony, and it is recommended that you discuss the most important aspects of the person’s life and character during this meeting so that the Celebrant can make the service more personal, even if they did not know the person during their lifetime. Prior to the meeting, you might find it helpful to jot down some notes on your wishes. Religious Celebrants will usually keep in touch with you after the ceremony if you request it.
