Planning a religious funeral

When planning a religious funeral, you will find that nearly every religion has traditional customs around death and the structure that religion provides can be of great comfort to grieving survivors.

Why choose a religious funeral?

Many people choose a religious funeral as it is a traditional way of showing respect for the deceased and can include the ceremonies and customs which for some faiths are a necessity. At Bennetts Funeral Directors we can arrange services for any faith or religion, respecting all aspects of customs required.

What happens at a religious funeral?

A religious funeral is a traditional service usually held in a church, at a cemetery, or crematorium and led by a minister. It includes hymns, prayers, a sermon, and a reading. You may wish to personalise the service by selecting the music or reading a eulogy of your loved one’s life. The service ends with a burial in a cemetery or the committal of your loved one in a crematorium.
