Nine ways to add personal touches to make a funeral unique

8. Personal venues

Carefully consider your choice of venue.

If you are planning a more traditional funeral, the location may be more obvious as your loved one may have had specific religious values. However, you do not have to opt for this, as there is no legal requirement stating the funeral ceremony must take place in a church, crematorium, or other place of worship.

To add a personal touch to make a funeral unique could start with the venue. Possibilities could include private gardens, listed buildings, a sports complex, village hall or your own house and garden. However, permission may be required to take a coffin into these places.
