    Humanist Ceremonies

    Humanist Ceremonies

    Humanist funerals and memorial services offer a personal and fitting way to say goodbye to those who have lived without religion. Many thousands are conducted by our celebrants each year. Humanist funerals bring people together to express sadness at the loss but also to celebrate the life lived. They focus sincerely and affectionately on the person who has died, paying tribute to the connections they made and left behind and the way they lived their life.

    SANDS is a national self-help organisation which has been registered as a charity since 1981 (Registration number 299679).
