We are a small independent funeral service who believe that a funeral director should be completely flexible and transparent about prices, to enable people to choose a funeral that truly reflects the individual that has died.
Family and friends being empowered throughout the process of planning a funeral can be a positive and fundamental part of the grieving process. At Full Circle Funerals, we are committed to giving you the opportunity to have as much hands-on involvement as you want, in deciding the best way to start to commemorate an important life.
As independent LGBT friendly funeral directors we work with our clients to help them make their loved one’s funeral a dignified tribute to a life well lived. We offer a wide range of options and whether you’re planning a quiet goodbye or a celebration of their life, we’ll give you the choices you need to ensure their ceremony reflects their personality and is sympathetic to your relationship.
Full Circle Funerals was established with the aim of offering friends and family the opportunity to take control of the funeral planning process by offering them a wide range of genuine choices. We feel that rather than being a process which has to be endured, with the right support, planning a funeral can prove to be a positive, inclusive experience.
Understanding the LGBT funeral options
Everybody is unique and we all have different beliefs and ways of life. With this in mind we work hard to provide friends and family with as many options as possible, from the timing and location of the funeral ceremony, through to natural funerals, traditional funerals and alternative transport.
Contrary to popular belief there are no rules and regulations on how to plan a funeral. Making personal choices is a lovely way to add a unique touch funeral and can help to create a ceremony which is a true reflection of the person who has died. From your choice of flowers and transport, through to the location and words said at the graveside, we’ll talk you through all the options available.
We work with families and friends to arrange both non-religious and religious LGBT funerals. As part of the process of planning your loved one’s funeral, we will ask you whether you would like to use a professional celebrant such as a church minister, humanist officiant or civil celebrant. However, you might prefer to conduct the ceremony yourself and we will offer you guidance on this. It’s important to stress that if you would like something different then that is OK; we understand that sharing special memories of a loved one is a very personal experience and we’ll support you throughout.
