When you lose a loved one it's incredibly difficult to come to terms with saying goodbye - whether their passing has been at the end of a long period of illness or even if it's happened suddenly. Holding a funeral is the formal way in which you can say your goodbyes and celebrate that person's life.

A funeral is the perfect opportunity to not only come together to celebrate that person's life, and the impact they had on those around them, but it’s a time for people to join together to share memories with others and reflect on happier times together.

Stories shared at a funeral give people a chance to remember the qualities their loved one was so special for - whether you laugh or cry together, it's about building on those memories that you cherish so much.

It's an important part of the healing process - so many people talk of the closure it gives them, and a feeling of being more at peace once the funeral has taken place.
