As an Independent Professional Funeral Celebrant I will help and guide you and your family at your time of loss to create a fitting and personal funeral ceremony.
Every person, their life, personality, family, and friends are truly individual to them.
Whilst this is a time of sadness and mourning, it may also be a time to celebrate their life in equal measure.
In helping you to personalise the ceremony I will visit you to discuss and try to gain an understanding of your loved one’s personality and how best present the story of their life. This may include your favourite reminiscences and memories, perhaps some brief anecdotes; readings and poems; a hymn, and a favourite classical or modern piece of music.
The ceremony will be tailored to your religious or non-religious beliefs, or we can work together to create careful words which are sympathetic or meaningful to all.
A truly personalised ceremony will be drafted, and sent to you for approval. It will be my honour to greet you and lead that ceremony as your Celebrant.
You may also wish to invite my assistance at the time of scattering ashes, placing a headstone, or dedicating a memorial bench, tree or engraved plaque.
‘Expression of Wish’
There are many reasons for people to pre-plan their ceremony, for example facing terminal illness, old age, or simply for piece of mind. An individual may desire to consider, discuss, and set out the framework of their wishes for their own Funeral Ceremony.
I can help guide you and produce an Expression of Wish document which can either be held in confidence or shared with your loved ones.
