How Funerals Are Changing

Funeral Choices & Prices - Fallon Funerals

Every culture in every corner of the world mourns. Throughout all of human existence, we have taken the time to grieve the deaths and celebrate the lives of our passed loved ones. But while the core ideas of a loving or triumphant farewell have stayed with through the aeons, the aesthetics and practices have changed in step with society.

More and more, we are stemming away from the traditional view of funerals as a necessarily sombre religious affair. Funeral directors tell us that, as a generation, we are envisioning services as a celebration of the deceased’s memory and not as a mourning of their passing. This is not to say the sadness has in any way faded from the grieving process, far from it, but simply that we are using funerals to appreciate what we had, not lament what we will not.

Secular Funerals

Part of this phenomenon comes from the falling numbers of religious people across the country. A large aspect of the traditional funeral is the focus on (often Christian) values and practices. 

As individuals are starting to break from that faith, that specific form of grief becomes less and less of an expectation. Funerals have become an incredibly personal experience, with bespoke directors tailoring every detail to give your loved one a send-off that they would be proud of. Artisanal coffins, hand-selected flowers, and a wide-range of hearses can be combined to reflect the life you are there to celebrate.

Non-Traditional Cremations

The same can go for cremations. Your loved one’s ashes are the material connection between their memory and you, and how you create that is entirely your choice. While the traditional urn has remained a poignant symbol of loss, increasingly, directors have seen requests for ashes to be woven into anything from jewellery to vinyl records and even tattoos. Funeral arrangers are aware of the deeply unique relationship between everyone they work for and can do anything to ensure that connection is celebrated.

Military Funerals - Fallon Funerals

After leaving the Royal Marines Dominic was out of work and struggling to pay the bills. This was affecting how he was feeling because as the main breadwinner, he felt that he wasn’t providing for his family.

Dominic moved into the funeral industry and saw at first-hand how families were struggling at this difficult time while dealing with the loss of a loved one and having to worry about the financial aspects too. Funeral poverty in the UK shows that 1 in 6 families either take out a loan or put money on a credit and to pay for a funeral. Dominic could see the pressure that they were under.

This led him to want to offer a funeral service that was transparent and fair from the first phone call and doesn’t cut corners. He also wanted to give something back to the British Legion and his fellow service men and women and families. Having spoken to the British Legion they now know that there is a funeral service that will work with families to give them the service they require.

He set up Fallon Family Funerals to plug a gap in the market, offering a respectful and dignified service for families for a fair price and Dominic intends to give an extra 10% to all serving and ex-military personnel and family.
