Using our detailed knowledge of Church of England & Wales funerals, we’ll work with you and your Anglican Celebrant to personalise the service with music, readings, eulogies and Holy Communion as required.
Here at Chris Davies Funeral Services, we work with many churches and communities in the Cynon Valley. As well as advising on appropriate hymns, prayers, sermons and funeral readings, we can help you put together a eulogy, speech or visual tribute for you loved one that can shared during the service by family members, friends or your Celebrant.
If you’d like to include the taking of Holy Communion in the funeral service, simply let us know and we’ll be able to work with your Celebrant to arrange this for you.

Whether you’d like a sombre and reflective ceremony that gives the family the opportunity to express grief and affirm faith or you’d prefer a more joyous occasion that celebrates your loved one’s life and their afterlife with God as their soul is reunited – we’ll work with you and your Pastor or Minister to arrange a service featuring Christian hymns and scripture readings that are of personal significance to your loved one and your family.
Funerals have become increasingly personalised over the last five years with the rise in popularity of humanist and civil ceremonies.
More often than not, a civil or humanist ceremony is held offering families the opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one exactly as they wish to. This flexibility is the deciding factor for many people that don’t have strong religious ties, or are seeking a non-religious ceremony.
