Unitarian Church - Arranging your own funeral

Description:

Unitarians offer special services to celebrate birth and naming, marriage or partnership, or a life that has ended. These are arranged as far as possible to meet the needs of those most closely involved.

Unitarian ministers are free and yet also have a responsibility to try to meet the spiritual needs of people whether or not they belong to Unitarian congregations.

Although such ministers may have worked out forms of 'occasional' services reflecting their own beliefs and experience of life, they are usually more than willing to adapt ceremonies to meet particular needs. For example, to incorporate words and music important to those involved, or help people create, and sometimes even conduct, their own form of ceremony or celebration.

For more information, please follow the link to visit their website.

Additional Information

Notes:

Funerals -  whether at a crematorium, place of worship, home or graveside, Unitarian ministers are concerned primarily with the needs and wishes of the bereaved, and seek to reflect the life and beliefs of the dead person in a personal way.

If you want to arrange your own funeral the Unitarian Church offers advice, support and information.
