Planning a celebration of your life

Funerals in the UK are changing from the traditional, sombre occasions to more colourful celebrations of life. A 2015 ICM survey found that 54%* of people now want their funeral to be a “celebration of their life”. Increasingly today’s funerals include a personal theme which represents that person’s passion in life. A quick internet search will reveal Star Wars themed funerals, services specially designed for those who served in the Armed Forces, and funerals for sports fans in their beloved team colours. In addition, woodland burials offer a beautiful natural alternative to traditional funerals in cemeteries and graveyards. They provide a choice where friends and families can come together to celebrate the life of a loved one in beautiful English woodlands.
