Members of Farnham Humanists regularly help people mark significant events in their lives by conducting Humanist funerals, weddings or civil partnerships and baby namings.
As Humanists with no religious belief it’s important that we can mark these occasions with honesty, warmth and affection, using words and music that are personal and appropriate to the lives and the people involved.
Each of the ceremonies is unique, created specially for the people involved. The focus is the occasion and the person or people being celebrated or commemorated. There are no special rules or strict observances beyond basic legal requirements. The ceremonies are planned in close consultation to make sure it’s exactly what people and their families want.
Farnham Humanist members Ailsa Davies, Alec Leggatt, Roy Weedon and Sue Willson are local Humanist Officants and can be contacted for further information including about local ceremonies.
