Rosalie creates and conducts bespoke and inclusive funeral ceremonies. The family may include elements that are meaningful to them or to the person who has died: religious, humanistic, spiritual, or secular. She has experience with a vast range of funerals, encourages families and children to be involved if they wish and has an special interest in alternative funeral venues.
A good funeral helps people acknowledge a death, pay tribute to a life lived, and find comfort and hope for the time to come. A funeral can be a healing and uplifting experience. Rosalie guides families in finding their way to express their final goodbyes. She meets the family in person (or, if they live further away via phone or Skype) and takes the time that is needed to get to know them and the person who has passed away. In the days before the ceremony she discusses the script with the family to make sure they are pleased with it. She also liaises with the funeral director and the crematorium or cemetery to make sure that everything is in place for the funeral service. On the day, she conducts the ceremony, ensuring a calm, engaging and smooth delivery. The family will receive a keepsake and she will contact them a couple of days later to learn how they look back on the day.
Rosalie studied Theology (MA) and has completed advanced traning in Child Bereavement, Baby Loss, and Traumatic Grief. In 2018 she won the National Celebrant Award for Outstanding Funeral Celebrancy.
