A funeral is a sad and emotional event but it is also a celebration of someone’s life and of the joy and happiness that knowing them brought – someone who was special to those around them. That celebration should acknowledge the sad side of the funeral but also be focussed on the person who lived – who they were and what they meant to the people who knew them.
I work with you to create and deliver meaningful and worthwhile non-religious funeral ceremonies that celebrate and remember a person’s life; of the life they lived, the things they did and the people who loved them.
Working with you and listening to you, I find out about the way you would like the funeral of your loved one to be and the way that you would like to remember them.
I talk to you; the family, or those arranging the funeral to find out about the deceased person and your wishes for the funeral. I write the ceremony, liaise with the funeral director and keep you informed, then on the day, I take the funeral at the crematorium, burial place, or wherever has been arranged.
The majority of ceremonies that I take are Cremations and Burials, as well as Memorials, Ashes Scattering or Ashes Burial.
I can also take Virtual Ceremonies and draw up Pre-Planned Funerals. Cremation ceremonies may include Live-Streaming over the internet if required.
Coronavirus – Covid-19
The regulations are constantly changing and vary from place to place. Both the funeral director and I can give advice about how to work with the situation. I can visit you at home now but there are other ways of arranging things if you prefer.
When I speak to you first, we can arrange a longer meeting, either face to face* or via Zoom, etc. If that is not possible, we may be able to complete the details with a longer telephone call – whichever you find most suitable. This is usually referred to as the Family Meeting – it is a special time and one which I value.
You may not feel at your best if you have just lost someone close but I am happy to give as much time as is needed to chat to you and learn about you and the person who has died.
I want to find out about you and you will want to know a little about me. Most of all, I want you to feel that I am going to take the funeral in the way that you want it to be.
More details can be found on my website.
If you have any questions about funerals or anything else you would like to know, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to chat on the telephone or by email - details are in this listing.
