Creating a bespoke service, honouring memories and celebrating life

Losing someone you love and care about can be an upsetting and painful time. Many decisions have to be made, including their funeral ceremony about the life they lived.

As a qualified Civil Funeral Celebrant, I can help you tell their own, individual and unique story.

I have been professionally trained to create and deliver truly personal funeral services, where the life of a person can be remembered, celebrated and honoured with sensitivity and empathy.

I will meet with you to discuss your wishes for the ceremony and to gain a good insight into the personality, character and essence of your loved one.

This will include their life story, the reasons they mattered, what made them lovable and unique, the legacies they have left, and the words of family and friends whose hearts they have touched. It should reflect the wishes, values and beliefs held by them, and by you.

The ceremony can contain religious elements if you wish, along with your choice of music, readings and poetry, and other personal touches.

You will be able to check the ceremony content beforehand and I will offer you a full scripted text of the ceremony to keep afterwards.

I will work closely with the Funeral Director to support you at this time and you can be assured of a completely professional service.
