Perram and Timmins Celebration of Life Funerals

Life Celebration Funerals

A life should be celebrated. Life celebration funerals are exactly that. Every service is individually and personally designed to reflect and celebrate the life of your family member or loved one. Over the years funeral traditions and customs have changed. The way we say “good bye” is now much more individual. At Perram and Timmins Funerals every funeral is unique and personalised to each family’s wishes. These are not non religious funerals but individual personalised tributes to a life, spiritual is a term we hear a lot from the families we look after. Our services are used by deeply religious families as well as those planning a life style funeral to every detail.

One of the key foundations of Perram and Timmins Funerals is care. Care for the ones left behind, care for the deceased and care in the precious task we have been given. As an Australian owned family business we make the funeral the meaningful event that it should be to honour the “life that was theirs”.

Every life is individual and unique. The ways that we celebrate that life should reflect that idea. In a life celebration funeral you can plan every aspect of the funeral down to the last detail. These funerals are officiated by one of our approved funeral celebrants, your own celebrant or clergy. Our celebrants are only approved after though review and all must have at least 3 years experience.

The life celebration funeral may or may not contain religious aspects. This is your decision and to be discussed with your funeral arranger and celebrant. The service does focus on your family member or loved one’s life, celebrating the journey that is a life. The funeral is individually planned and very personal. These funeral services allow the family to plan every aspect of the funeral without the restriction of formal rules.

A life celebration funeral is the ‘new’ funeral or memorial service. It provides a positive focus on your loved one’s life while everyone says their good-byes. It celebrates life instead of dwelling on death. A Life Celebration Funeral is actually an uplifting service and allows people to laugh and/or cry whatever their preference.

Our funerals reflect the modern style or funerals while respecting traditional values. They allow the personal touches and planning to be included in a funeral that memorialises the life of your loved one or family member and commemorates that journey.
