In recent years, it has become clear that the idea of a traditional funeral does not appeal to an increasing majority of the population.
With a rise in demand for more uplifting celebrations, we’re seeing families opt for more personalised funerals than ever before.
Personalising a funeral can turn it into a true celebration instead. But, what can you do to personalise a funeral?

1. Music with meaning
When planning a celebration of life for your loved one, you can have any music you like.

You might choose anything from traditional hymns to a recent chart hit, their favourite TV theme tune, or even live music.
The deceased may have even left a specific musical request before they passed.
