Most of us want to mark important events in our lives and to commemorate people we have loved when they die. For those with no religious belief the British Humanist Association has developed a network of accredited celebrants to conduct funeralsÂ and memorials, weddings and civil partnerships, and baby namings.Â Full details can be found on the BHA web site at www.humanism.org.uk/ceremonies Names and contact details for all BHA accredited celebrants may be accessed here according to the post code areas in which they operate.
