I have made a video of a test “online funeral” ceremony. I conducted it live on Zoom with a “panel” of friends and colleagues and recorded the session. I tried to make it as realistic as possible and included a poem and a tribute from two of the other attendees. Plus some music and a short video clip as well as some images of the “deceased”.

The session starts with a little introduction that I would make to the family and friends to explain how it works on Zoom as people are not necessarily familiar with this. I then conduct the ceremony. It’s about 17 min long.

I am very keen to get feedback so please do contact me to chat about it.

A huge thank you to the panel for all their help especially Cate Reid, Celebrant, and Richard Scarborough for speaking; Carole Nelson for providing the music video; and Richard Bell for helping me test the format.
