There are increasing numbers of people who choose to have non-religious funerals in Salford and surrounding areas. The tradition of our forebears struggles to find a place in our busy world today. Although religion and church going is still popular there is a trend towards simple non-religious funeral. There is a significant cost saving in having a non-religious funeral. Church fees, ministers and graves are not needed as are flowers for the church and hymn sheets. A simple memorial service can be held in any hall or out in a favourite part of the countryside, in a park or home. A private cremation is usual in these circumstances.
Burials are being seen as environmentally unfriendly in many parts of the country. In Salford, non-religious funerals are making cremation increasingly popular. Many people feel the need for a Celebration of Life service rather than a church funeral. This allows friends and relatives to look back on the life of the loved one and reminisce about the happy times spent with the person. The most important part of a funeral is to say goodbye to a dearly loved person. When friends and relatives gather the grief is shared and happier times come to mind.
