Humanist, Spiritual and Non-Religious Funerals in Bedfordshire - The Basic Structure of a Funeral
It may be useful for you, before I arrive for our family visit, to know the basic structure of a funeral which takes place either in a cremation chapel or a burial chapel. Music can be played in a cremation chapel, but this is more difficult in a burial chapel as generally, the facilities are not provided.
The ceremony itself will be of either 30 minutes, or 45 minutes duration. This depends entirely upon the crematorium. Within those times we must allow five minutes at the beginning and the end to allow the congregation to enter and to leave. This means therefore that in the case of a 30-minute ceremony, 20 minutes are allocated for the actual ceremony itself. This may seem like a short time but it is between us to ensure that this time is filled with beautiful, appropriate and thoughtful content.
