Planning a Traditional Religious Funeral

If you are planning a traditional religious funeral service in Essex & need funeral help, speak to Bennetts Undertakers & funeral Services

When planning a religious funeral, you will find that nearly every religion has traditional customs around death. From protocols for cleaning and dressing the body to features of the religious funeral service to memorial events, the structure that religion provides around dealing with a death both fulfills religious obligations and offers guidance to grieving survivors. If you require funeral help, Bennetts Funeral Directors Essex, offer traditional religious funerals and culturally sensitive memorial services.

Planning funeral rites around a traditional religious funeral are very important for two reasons:
They show respect for the dead and, in some religions, include various ceremonies which people believe are necessary to ensure that people go on to whatever their next life will be, and perhaps more importantly, they give the relatives and friends of the deceased time to mourn and show their grief in a certain way. Showing grief formally at a religious funeral service may begin to help with feelings of loss.

In the UK today, social, cultural and religious backgrounds of people can often vary in many ways, as can their personal convictions and lifestyles. In order to provide a culturally sensitive religious funeral service, an informed understanding of the varying beliefs and values of individuals is essential, and something that Bennetts Undertakers, can offer to all its Essex families.

Bennetts Funeral Services & Undertakers provide advice and funeral help with all planning & arranging traditional religious funerals, and are glad to work with people from any background and faith across the Essex area. If you need funeral help and advise we will be able to give you additional information when you speak to us. Please call us on 01277 210104
