Independent Funeral Directors

“At Gateway Funerals our civil funeral services are driven by the wishes, beliefs and values of the person who has died and their family, not by the belief or ideology of the person conducting the funeral”

A Civil Funeral is for anyone, whatever their beliefs. There is no set format for a Civil Funeral, as every family is different, and every person unique. It is a highly personal ceremony, created by you, the family and it can be anything and everything you want it to be.

The ceremony is written by a fully trained and accredited funeral celebrant, who will, in partnership with the family create a loving and memorable service.

The service can include hymns or prayers, but the most important aspect will be the tribute you have created for your special family member or friend. Family and friends may wish to take part in the service making it a more personal time together.

The funeral ceremony is your precious gift to the person who has died. It is a time to celebrate their life, and say goodbye to them with dignity and love.

At Gateway Funeral Services, we have a vast range of experience and cater for all Funeral Services. Please speak to us if you would like more information about our civil funeral service.
