Death is an inevitable part of the human experience and a funeral is an important rite of passage. It is an opportunity for friends and family to come together to remember and celebrate a unique life.
A religious ceremony may not seem appropriate to mark the life of someone who has lived without religious beliefs. Talk of an after-life may not offer comfort or solace to the bereaved.
But there is another option: a Humanist funeral or memorial ceremony is a celebration of the life of the person who has died. Proper tribute is paid to a unique personality, to the life they lived, the connections they made and the memories they have left behind. Words and music are carefully chosen to celebrate a very special life.
For me, it is an honour and privilege to help people arrange a fitting ceremony to mark the end of a life. I am based in North London and willing to travel to neighbouring counties.

Humanists think that
This world and this life are all we have
We should try to live full and happy lives ourselves and, as part of this, make it easier for others to do the same
All situations and people deserve to be judged on their merits by standards of reason and humanity
Individuality and social co-operation are equally important.
