Non-Religious Funerals

For a dignified service without the religious aspect, the team here at A. France & Son can help. We arrange respectful and characterful non-religious funerals and memorial services, including humanist funerals – or simply funerals without any element of spirituality. 

We help you celebrate the life of your loved one in a meaningful and memorable way with a tailored funeral ceremony that can include transport, coffins, content of service and non-religious officiant.

Many funerals in the UK follow traditional religious practices with a typical service taking approx. 30-40 minutes. In some cases this may extend to over an hour. However there is also the option of a humanist or secular service which would include poetry, music and an appreciation of the life of your loved one. We are able to arrange a secular officiant for you if this is what you require.
