If a bereavement has brought you to this page, then you have my sincere condolences. This is a difficult time for you and your family, with many things to consider and deal with. I am here to help you create the service you would like for you loved one, keeping their beliefs and wishes at the forefront of what we put together.
A funeral is an opportunity to say goodbye, to express your feelings of grief and to mark the life of the person who has died.
I can provide a funeral service with or without religious or spiritual content – it’s up to you and your family; knowing the wishes of the loved one.
As a celebrant, I will create a ceremony with you, centred on the life of the person, ensuring that his or her story is told, remembered and commemorated. I will ensure that the funeral acknowledges the life and marks that it happened, and talk about the achievements of the person who has passed away, their impact on the world, and the memories they leave behind.
Participation is very welcome, whether it takes the form of music played, or tributes from friends and family; recounting favourite memories or interesting stories.
Where you choose to have your service is up to you. So if you choose a woodland, sea or traditional crematorium service, you have the freedom of choice.
I will visit you in your home, and discuss the type of service you want, talk about the person who has passed away, so I get a picture of who they were and what their life was like. If you are happy for me to work with you on the day, I then draft a ceremony for you to approve and amend.
Memorial services can also be considered, if there are members of the family or friends who are unable to attend the funeral service.
