What is a funeral Celebrant?
A Funeral Celebrant is a person who is specifically trained and certified to meet the needs of families during their time of loss. They serve by providing a personalised funeral service to reflect the personality and the lifestyle of the deceased.
I pride myself on being able to provide a personally written ceremony script, which is meaningful, celebratory, sympathetic, and altogether honourable in representing the deceased and their grieving family. For many years, families were only offered the option of a religious funeral in a church, or the fully atheist alternative of a Humanist ceremony. However, as an Independent Celebrant I offer the option to involve your personal faith and beliefs when saying farewell; whether religious, non religious, spiritual or uncertain.
Today you have a choice to celebrate the life of a loved one, and mourn the passing of their spirit, in a way which is appropriate, personal and special to you. I am not affiliated to any religious order or spiritual faith, and am all encompassing in helping you to plan a funeral ceremony which is reflective of your own lifestyle and choices.
