Although I am not very religious, I do want to say the Lord’s Prayer and sing a hymn. Will a vicar let me have other favourite readings and music as well?
Talk to the Church of England minister who will take the service about what you would like in the service. As a Christian service, the minister will want to include the Lord’s Prayer and a Bible reading, and possibly a hymn as well. There will also be other prayers which he or she will include. However, you can always ask for other favourite readings to be read that don’t come from the Bible, and to listen to particular favourite pieces of music.

I would quite like a church service for the funeral but am worried that if we have a cremation afterwards, by the time I get back from the crematorium to the wake, everyone will be gone. What can I do?
