Welcome to SecularFuneral.co.uk. The site that will hopefully give you a little more
information about Civil Funerals.
Civil Funerals are now becoming commonplace in the UK, being an alternative to a
religious or atheist Funeral Ceremony.
A Civil Funeral Ceremony puts the emphasis on the life of the deceased, not the beliefs
of the person officiating. Each ceremony is written to try and capture the essence
of the person who has died using words, music and personal reminiscences. Putting
into words, in a dignified way, what needs to be said.
I am Marc Oxley, a Civil Funeral Celebrant living in Rutland. I have worked with
Funeral Directors in Rutland, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and
Nottinghamshire. I am a Fellow of the Society of Bereavement Practitioners. I
am an associate Member of the Association of Green Funeral Directors I am also
a former Chaplain to the High Sheriff of Rutland.
I trained as a Civil Funeral Celebrant with the Institute of Civil Funerals in March
2006. Since then I have officiated at over 870 Funerals in Crematoria, Municipal
Cemeteries and Green Burial Sites as well as private homes. Sizes of congregations
have ranged from 3 to 300; I hope and trust that all the ceremonies have been well
received. Click on this link to contact me.
