A funeral can be a chance to celebrate the life, loves and achievements of the person who has died. With my sympathetic guidance I can help you create a ceremony that captures the individuality and character of the deceased. I will meet with the family, listen to your anecdotes and memories and build a picture of the person you have lost. Together we can choose readings, poems and music to create a ceremony that is unique, loving and memorable.

I am happy to include any family traditions or ceremonies within the service and am equally comfortable with secular, spiritual or religious themes.

Many people are now realising that a funeral can break away from traditional ideas and stiff formality. The ceremony can be themed to suit an interest or passion from a person’s life and it may also be a chance to share with friends and family their loves and last wishes. An escort of motorcycles might be a perfect touch, or maybe you would like to release dozens of helium balloons. Whatever you choose, I will do my best to make sure your ceremony is perfectly suited to your lost loved one.


Some families prefer to have a simple cremation or burial with only a few close relatives present. This is then followed by a larger Memorial Ceremony. This allows the gathering to be held in any place you chose: a beach or a garden, in fact any place that is special to you all.

I will use all my professional skills and resources and create for you a funeral service that is sympathetic to your wishes and a loving and memorable ceremony honouring the person you have lost.

(As most celebrants, I do not charge for my services for the tragic circumstance of a funeral of a child.)
