Religious Funerals

Whether a person’s faith was central to their life, or a religious funeral ceremony is simply preferred for traditional reasons, we can help make the arrangements to ensure it’s a memorable day.   

A Variety of Faiths Welcomed 

Here at A. France & Son, we are warm and welcoming of all cultures and traditions, and can arrange religious funerals for a variety of faiths, including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and many others. We also arrange non-religious services, such as humanist funeral services. 

From the flowers to the music choices, we ensure that every detail is personal to your loved one and their faith – creating a respectful and dignified farewell that honours tradition and custom.

You can depend on our high level of expertise, knowledge and respect, as we are fully accredited by a number of leading professional organisations, including the British Institute of Embalmers and the NAFD.

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.
