What is a Funeral Celebrant?

As the name suggests, a celebrant leads a celebration. He/she conducts the funeral service with or without reference to religious traditions.

A Civil Celebrant creates and leads services shaped to suit the personal preferences of the deceased or their family.

They work hand in hand with your Funeral Director to celebrate the life of the person who has passed.

You can choose who you want as your Celebrant.

How can I help you?

As the last thing we can do for someone that we have loved, is plan their Funeral Service, we need to get it right, there is only one chance to do this for them.

There are no set rules to a funeral service but some of the options you could include are:

Music, Readings, Poems, Photographs, Hymns, Tribute/Eulogy, Family tribute

It doesn’t matter that you don’t have a script to follow, we will, between us, find the words, poems, music and personal touches that best portray the Life of your Loved One and make your service unique to you and your family.

Everyone has a story to tell; for some it is a shorter story than for others though it is never less meaningful. We don’t have to go through every chapter in their book of life, we can concentrate on the pages that mean the most to you.

Whether or not you have a religious belief we can make the service meaningful with or without hymns and prayers. As a Civil Celebrant I am able to include practically anything that you wish into a service.

When the service is being conducted at a crematorium, it can normally be arranged for religious symbols to be removed from the chapel prior to the start of the service, if that is your preference.

Whatever you decide, I will be there for you and your family throughout, to support, comfort and reassure you during this difficult time.
