Yurts for Funerals
Yurt Hire for Funeral Ceremonies and Wakes
Alternative funeral spaces for alternative people available for wakes and funeral ceremonies.
An intimate, sensitive space where friends and family can say farewell to a loved one.
We understand that you are saying goodbye to a loved one, which is always difficult, yurts are a magical spiritual space and are still lived in, in parts of the world.
Cath herself as had many happy times bringing up her family in the shelter of a yurt. This is why she believes they are an ideal space for an alternative way of saying farewell & sending someone on their final journey.
Cath takes particular care and delight in providing her yurts with an appropriate interior for a fond caring ceremony. We provide a classic costamonger's cart for ease of movement of the beloved, while entering and leaving the yurt. Seating can be provided as part of the package.
The aim of this service is to provide an environmentally sustainable less formal ceremony to fit in with green interments.
It is important to realize that there are no restrictions on where the funeral service / ceremony can be held. A yurt can be erected close to the burial, leaving no trace after the event and allowing older or less able members to join in the farewell.
A natural ceremony is not just for the bereaved it can be an inspiring event for all concerned. Many people feel more comfortable with a gentle informal sendoff. The event can be adjusted to the timing of the day, allowing time for meditation on a life. Allowing the ceremony to proceed at its own pace.
