Celebration of Life funerals
Hebden Bridge Funeral Services caters for all kinds of funeral ceremonies; from religious, church-based services to contemporary ‘celebrations of life’.
If you feel that the traditional notion of a funeral is unsuited to your loved one, or they did not actively practice a faith, please contact us to discuss the broad variety of alternative arrangements available to you.
Often, when people think of a funeral, a church-based service that follows traditional religious customs is the first thing that comes to mind. For some though, this kind of ceremony seems ill-suited to someone who did not actively practice a faith.
Celebration of Life funerals are an increasingly popular way to commemorate a loved one through their passions, hobbies, achievements and enthusiasms. Music, readings, photographs and so on are put to the fore, as are contributions from people who were closest to the deceased – their partners, relatives and friends.
Of course, time can be set aside during the funeral for private reflection and prayer, ensuring opportunities are present for all attendees to pay their respects as they see fit.
