Funeral Planners and Celebrants
Funeral Celebrants makes it easy to find a Funeral Celebrant that’s right for you: just enter your postcode and we’ll show you a list of celebrants (from the five major groups, plus independents) that serve your area.
Every family is different and whilst the majority of people in the UK still choose a traditional religious funeral service, an increasing number are considering a Civil Funeral Ceremony. The Institute of Civil Funerals promotes awareness of this important new choice both to Funeral Directors and bereaved families and keeps a public list of registered Celebrants to help people find an appropriate one for their ceremony.
