Atheist Funeral Ceremony
Atheist funerals are for those who lived their lives without religious affiliation and reject the typically religious views associated with life and death.
Atheist does not believe in a deity or have a specific reference to the afterlife. The funeral services are usually a tribute to the life of the deceased, loved ones left behind acknowledged and deceased’s life is remembered through memories.
The focus of the funeral service is sincerity and affection for the deceased and his/her family and close friends. Family or friends may be asked to share their fond memories with others during the funeral service.
Cremation and burial are both common with atheist funeral practices. An atheist funeral service can be held at any time – so it is up to the family to decide on the timing.
