The Institute of Civil Funerals offers advice and guidance on civil funerals. There is an extensive section on arranging a civil funeral, including the work of finding a celebrant and hiring them. There is also some very detailed advice on planning a civil funeral in advance.
The Institute is a professional body, and has numerous pages of information for members. It also welcomes new members and provides advice how to join and become a registered celebrant.
The most useful aspect of the site from a customer’s point of view is the opportunity to find a celebrant near to them, through a handy map that appears on screen. These members are all IOCF registered and follow the values and approach the IOCF promotes.
