Funerals and Memorial Services
Celebrants are supporting families more and more in creating a funeral, memorial or end-of-life tribute ceremony that honours and respects a loved one . It can be such a very difficult time -with so much to plan and organise. This is what you can expect from me as your Funeral Celebrant to help support you and your family...
I will visit you and speak to you to create the funeral or memorial ceremony that you really want – truly reflecting and celebrating the life of the person who has died.
My approach is always compassionate and caring. I am happy to work with people of all faiths or none-to include religious elements into the service or none at all. It is your choice.
The ceremony we create together will focus on your loved one’s personality and experience, their achievements and interests. It will be a celebration of their life, reflecting both their, and your, values and beliefs, providing you with positive lasting memories.
The ceremony can include your specially chosen readings and music. I'm happy to make suggestions or research the perfect poem . There is an extensive memorial board on the Pinterest link on my web page for your information.
You and other family members and friends can be involved in the delivery of the ceremony if you would like to be. I am there to support if someone finds it too much on the day.
I will send a copy of the service to you to ensure it has everything you want included and will make as many changes as you wish to ensure it is just right.
On the day of the funeral I will be there to greet you and lead the service...
You will receive a copy of the service in a presentation folder to keep as part of the memorial of your loved one.
I also write and officiate at memorial services...
A memorial ceremony does not need to take place immediately after the death – it can be when ever the family feels ready. This can be a celebration of life planned to take place when family and friends are available to attend. It can take place in a venue of your choice at a time to suit you.
Though most of my funerals are booked through Funeral Directors, please do get in touch directly if you wish to use me to provide a unique, personal and meaningful ceremony.
Other Funeral Celebrant services include burials ,natural burials, private land ceremonies,scattering or internment of ashes and pre-planned funeral ceremonies.
Funeral Ceremonies can be prepared and led for individuals of any age including infants and babies who have died before birth.
