impersonal, crematorium ceremony bland enough to fit every situation.
Friends and relatives want something personal, dignified, and moving.

often celebrate funerals with colourful processions, decorated coffins,
music, singing and dancing - there are many ideas that can he incorporated
into our traditional rituals to enrich them. Whether you just want to

a funeral, useful addresses for further information, websites and an
anthology of readings for both religious and secular ceremonies.
