I’d like to know more about a Wicca funeral for a class project.

Do you have prayers you say before and after death?

Are the requirements for the family?

Any and all info is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi Emmie,

According to the information we found, there are different Wicca sects, and each one has it’s own funeral traditions. In most cases, the specifics of the funeral will depend on the preferences of the family, and often the actual ceremony will look like a traditional funeral. There don’t appear to be any hard and fast rules, but these types of funerals are often simple and focused on nature or the elements.

This site has a few poems and prayers that are classified as Wicca though we can’t vouch for its accuracy.

There is quite a lot of information available on the Internet that goes into more detail on the practices of this particular community. Here’s an example:

I’m sorry we can’t be more specific. There are many different ways that funerals are done and since Wicca is uncommon, we don’t have any particular expertise in their traditions. Luckily, it looks like there is a lot of information publicly available to help you with your project. We hope that this was at least a little bit helpful.

Good luck with your project!
