Funeral Plans

I know this is a somewhat sombre subject, especially for some of our more younger members. But has anyone made plans for their own funeral, and what type of service do they envisage having for themselves especially for us Atheist.

I myself have made plans for the British Humanist Society to officiate at my service. I've used them many times in the past for the funerals of my Parents and both of my sisters and sadly my best friend. If you have made plans for the kick off, would you mind sharing them with us. Here is the link to the British Humanist Society where it shows how it carries out its work.

It would be interesting to hear about the different ways Atheists around the world celebrate the lives of secular people at the end of there lives.

What is a humanist funeral?

A humanist funeral is a non-religious service that is both a dignified farewell and a celebration of a life. It recognises the profound sadness of saying goodbye whilst celebrating the life and legacy of a loved one.

What happens at a humanist funeral?

The celebrant will work closely with the family to create a unique and personal ceremony.

A typical funeral often includes pieces of music and readings. But the heart of the ceremony is the tribute section, which lasts up to 15 minutes and might be written by the celebrant and/or include a variety of tributes paid by family and friends. Time for reflection follows, then the committal, and the funeral is drawn to a close with final words of thanks. You may want to have a look at a typical structure of a humanist funeral.

Where are humanist funerals held?

Funeral ceremonies have no legal status in themselves so you are free to hold one wherever you choose. That said, most humanist funerals are held at crematoria, cemeteries or woodland burial sites.
