Non-religious Funeral Services at The Manchester Crematorium

Manchester Crematorium welcomes funerals of a non-religious nature. For information on religious funeral ceremonies, please click here.

The crematorium allows each funeral a time slot of forty minutes.

Please bear in mind that this time also should include the time taken for people to enter and exit the chapel. If you think that a service might take longer, we offer the facility to book two consecutive times (eighty minutes). Please contact the office for more details.

A non-religious ceremony might generally include music on entry and exit, tributes and periods for reflection. Funeral directors will be able to help with engaging the service of a non-religious celebrant (whether humanist, atheist or other). For more details on humanist celebrants, visit it the British Humanist Association website.
