A celebrant led service can be religious or non-religious, it can be spiritual or have no reference to anything at all. Its entirely your choice and we always follow your wishes.
I will meet with you to plan your ceremony and ensure that your wishes are clearly understood and followed.
You may choose to include hymns, prayers, music, readings , a eulogy or a tribute. You may choose to have family and friends involved in any part of the service and I can help arrange that too.
I can guide you through the planning process and listen to your wishes and desires. I work with the funeral director and your family to create a truly personal and unique service for your loved one.
If needed I can provide you with a selection of readings and poems, as well as help with your music choices.
All of the ceremonies I write are unique to you and your family.
Traditional and Woodland Burials
Burials can be held at a traditional graveyard or at a natural burial ground.
Services are similar to that held in a Crematorium, but normally are performed in two parts. The service and then at the graveside.
The service I offer is personalised to meet the wishes of you and your family.
I work with your Funeral Director to ensure that the service I provide for your loved one is personal, fitting and a true reflection of their legacy.
I am also offer able to offer ash scatterings, internments and memorial services if this is something you think you would like to do after the Funeral.
Order of Service and Eulogys
We work with your Funeral Director to provide help and guidance on the format or type of Order of Service.
We can write or provide guidance on writing a Eulogy that is personal, memorable and that honours the life of your loved one.
Readings, Poems & Personal Tributes
It can sometimes be difficult to find a reading or poem that is fitting for the lost of a loved one. We provide advice and guidance on including these in your service, as well as examples of poems and readings that you might find suitable.
If you, a family member or a friend wishes to make a personal tribute during the service, we can provide help and support if needed.
Memorials and Ash Cemenroines
Memorials are an opportunity for people to attend and partcipate in saying goodbye and celebrating the loss of a loved one, friend or colleague.
They are ideal if you have many people who were unable to attend the funeral and provide a great opportunity for the deceased wider circle of friends and colleagues to pay their respects.
They can be held almost anywhere.
