A Ceremony that truly reflects the life of your loved one.
Your Personalised Funeral Ceremony
If you have recently been bereaved, please accept our sincere condolences.
We are Independent Civil Funeral Celebrants, for all faiths and none. We work closely with local Funeral Directors and communicate with bereaved families.
We officiate at burials, cremations, or woodland ceremonies, including themed funerals, Gothic, or Bikers. We recognise the individuality of the deceased person and work closely with bereaved families to fulfil their loved one’s final wishes, whether it be a gentle goodbye, or a more uplifting farewell, in the form of a Celebration of life.
We are also willing to officiate at the funerals of those who have taken their own lives by suicide, and funerals of infants and young children, including still births.
We also officiate at memorial services for families who were unable to say a final farewell at the time of the deceased’s death.
We are compassionate and sensitive to the needs of bereaved families, regardless of the situation surrounding their death. Every person should have the right to a respectful farewell. No two people are alike, and therefore, no two funerals are the same. We work with you, to ensure each ceremony reflects the qualities and personality of the person who has died.
Our first contact is usually a phone call from the funeral director, asking us if we are available to conduct a funeral service. He/she then provides us with the contact details of the next of kin, with whom we make prompt contact with, initially by phone, and arrangements are made for further meetings, either by phone, email, or Google Duo. Where appropriate, we will also visit the family in person.
The next of kin will provide us with details of their loved one’s life, happy moments, sad moments, and information that allows us to write a befitting eulogy for the funeral, unique to the deceased’s life, whether they were religious or not, and reflecting their cultures and beliefs. We establish rapport with the grieving family, engaging with, and listening to them, as they tell us their loved one’s life story. The eulogy will have been made available to the family for approval, and any changes they wish will be made and agreed prior to the day of the funeral.
On the day of the funeral, as well as reading out the Eulogy, we also provide the opening and closing words, together with the committal. Family and friend participation is encouraged during the funeral service by the reading of tributes/poems, agreed prior to the day of the funeral. We also provide the family with a presentation script of the service, at the end of the funeral.
In the event of a bereavement, please ask your Funeral Director to call us.
