A funeral celebrant will help you to say good bye properly and create a ceremony that reflects your family

How a Funeral Celebrant can help

Do things your own way. You don't need to feel inhibited by tradition or custom. You can create, with me, the service that really suits you and your loved one. I uphold the values of Love, Respect, Family, Freedom and a Good Life - irrespective of one's creed or chosen outlook. This means I can hold a ceremonial space for religious and non-religious ceremonies and celebrations of life. I bring a blank canvas, with suggestions, experience and guidance, listening and understanding.

Every human being's life is unique. I will work with you to make your funeral service special; a meaningful and individualised ceremony that truly reflects the life and personality of the person you loved.

You'll meet with me and we'll talk about your loved one's life-journey. We'll look at your memories, and music with special meaning. In partnership, we'll craft a tribute, and create a ceremony unique to the person who has died.

I can assist you in choosing music and readings and help you with a tribute, either by offering advice on what you can include or by writing it on your behalf. The right choices can make a big difference. I can talk with and help prepare anyone who wishes to speak at the ceremony. I will always conduct the service with dignity and respect, and will liaise with the Funeral Director to ensure everything goes smoothly on the day.


Saying Goodbye With Love

I am standing on the seashore.

A ship at my side spreads her white sails and starts for the blue ocean. As she sails away to the horizon, I stand and watch until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other. Someone at my side shouts "There she goes!" And just at that very moment as she leaves our sight, there are other eyes watching her coming... and other voices ready to take up the glad shout... "Here she comes!"
