There is no requirement that a funeral service must be performed by a clergy member. If you desire a member of clergy to perform the service but do not have one, the funeral home can arrange for a clergy member from the denomination of your choice to perform the service and meet with the deceased's family in order to tailor the service to the family's wishes. Another option is a funeral celebrant, which also can be arranged by the funeral home. Not necessarily a clergy member, funeral celebrants are professionals who specialize in creating personal, meaningful services.
