When someone passes away, we need to express our grief and say goodbye, celebrating the life they have had and the achievements they have made.
Funerals, or as we like to call them, ‘Celebrations of Life’, do not have to be a solemn or traditional affair. As a funeral celebrant, I will ensure that the ceremony reflects what you want to say and how you want to say it. I will be with you to offer help and support at your most challenging and upsetting time.
I can offer:
The ceremony will be conducted in a caring, sensitive and professional manner, expressing your wishes and those of your loved one.
My commitment to you will include:
- Meeting with you at a time and location convenient to you to discuss your requirements for the ceremony and how you would like to say goodbye. We will talk about your memories of your loved one and consider any fascinating stories we can include.
- We will talk about the person, their life and loves, and who you would like to be involved in the ceremony and in what capacity.
- We will go through any music; readings or poem choices you may have.
- We will talk about any religious or spiritual aspects you want to include.
- If you or anyone else needs help in writing a tribute to your loved one, I will be available to assist in any way I can.
- In conjunction with the Funeral Director and staff at the crematorium or burial ground, I will ensure that the day runs smoothly and in accordance with your request.
- I will be with you on the day and will conduct the service for you.
Did you know?
- Celebrations of Life do not have to be held in a Crematorium; you can decide where to hold the ceremony.
- Perhaps you want to have a small private cremation at the Crematorium and then have a ceremony somewhere else, whether at home or a venue, a place that has special meaning to you or the person who has passed.
- The actual cremation can take place either before or after the ceremony, the decision is yours.
