Down to Earth – The Changing Funeral Needs of a Changing Society
Down to Earth – The Changing Funeral Needs of a Changing Society
by Marian Barnes

Marian was a long-time campaigner for the right of non-religious people to have secular funerals.

This book was first published in 1991, and demand was so high when it went out-of-print,  that she made it available for copying and distribution by The Celebrant School. This extremely thorough resource is a funeral classic, covers everything from the historic antecedents of the contemporary funeral, through funerals vs memorials, lowering vs not lowering the casket, considerations around death notices in newspapers, a sample funeral, readings and much more.

A highly recommended resource, this is copied and spiral bound.

Fresh Perspectives on Funerals in Covid Times
Workshop recording

Funerals have been perhaps the most disrupted ceremony during the Covid pandemic. Celebrants have responded in creative ways to assist families in finding respectful, loving and appropriate ways to mark the passing of a loved one.

This workshop, facilitated by Winnie Duggan, brought celebrants together to share experiences and refresh ideas. For those who missed the session in November 2021, this video records the 3 main presentations by Winnie (Wellington), Sam Bennett (Taranaki), and Laura Manson (Golden Bay). They illustrate how celebrants have needed to find new ways to engage with clients and assist them mark the death of a family member.

NB: The Covid specific information shared back in November 2021 has since been updated, so check the Government website for current guidelines.
