Be Ceremonial

Home Funeral Ceremony

Be Ceremonial’s unique platform helps you create a home funeral ceremony that reflects your story. Choose from our extensive library of secular rituals and create a ceremony to honour this time of change. 

What is a home funeral ceremony?

A home funeral is a gathering that takes place in the days following a death, usually held before, or in lieu of, a funeral.

The body may be present, and rituals often involve caring for the body after death and creating a space for storytelling. This can be a healing and sacred time for both individuals and the deceased’s close community.

Why is it important?

The home was once where people gathered after someone died, often with the body present. As a society, we have been distanced from death and often perceive it to be ugly or unsanitary. By inviting death into the home once again, we can honour a life and create rituals that support our mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing moving forward.

Our rituals are designed to support you with ideas and inspiration as you plan for a home funeral. We invite you to draw from these rituals and then make them your own, reflecting the stories you want to tell during this sacred experience.

How do I create one?

However you choose to acknowledge this time of transition, our app will guide you through the process. You can choose to create a ceremony on your own, with a friend, or as a group. You can even gift this experience to someone you care for.

With hundreds of universal rituals to choose from, our app offers something for everyone. Simply follow our ritual framework to create a ceremony unique to you.
