When someone you love dies you want to arrange the best funeral for them that you can - but there is so much to do in a short space of time that it can feel quite overwhelming. You may know exactly what you want but, if not, as your celebrant I can help you with some of the decisions about the funeral service.
Following the initial contact, which may come directly from you or may come to me through your funeral director, I will meet with you, and family members, to talk about your loved one, listen to your memories, and find out what your special person was like. I can help you to think about the type of service you want, any special readings or music and I'll then write a service exclusively for you. I will send you a copy to make sure that it is accurate and truly reflects your loved one, and what you want in the service. On the day of the funeral, I will lead the service and support family members and others who may want to make special tributes and I'll give you a keepsake copy of the service to take away with you.
Pet funerals - your loved one may be a family pet, and we grieve for these as much as the people in our lives. If you want to honour your pet with a special funeral service then get in touch and we can talk through ideas and possibilities.
If you would like me to lead a funeral for you, either contact me directly or pass my details to your funeral director. If you simply want to make an enquiry or ask questions then please contact me.

A few of the lovely comments I've had from families:
I wanted to take a moment to send a personal message to express my gratitude and appreciation to you relating to my Dad's funeral. You enabled us to share precious memories which you then delivered so eloquently and I felt you brought his character back to life during those final moments. Although I felt overwhelmed by the loss of my Dad, with your professional yet gentle approach I was able to embrace the service and found the strength to truly listen and reflect on his long life. Everyone I spoke to afterwards commented on how special they found the service and it felt as though you knew Dad based on your delivery.
Thank you so much for helping us celebrate his life and enabling us to have such positive memories of what was a difficult time.
I hardly know where to begin this morning but my very first job is to tell you how much I appreciate the service you led for K last Thursday. I thought it was perfectly composed
and reflected K's personality and life ideally. I almost felt you knew him. Quite a few of the mourners expressed their admiration of the beauty and simplicity with which you
led us through what was a sad and difficult time especially for myself and his children and extended family. Many thanks for the time and compassion that you showed to all of us.
Thank you so much for delivering the service for my mom and dad today. Everyone attending told me how much they enjoyed it and how beautiful and poignant it was. In fact several people found it so moving that they asked for your details afterwards.From the start it has been so comforting to know that you were the person who would be delivering the service for us. I am delighted with the copy of the tribute which you thoughtfully provided afterwards as well - just one example of the kindness, care and attention to detail that you have shown throughout. Thank you so much,
Your excellent conducting of the service has been on everyone's lips, and Welsh praise for your Welsh. A and P are at one in their praise of you. Me too. The shape of the service helped people greatly, and affirmed life as much as respecting S and her death. Elegantly wrought.
Thank you so much for your kind and respectful service for my mum's funeral today. All the family commented individually that they appreciated the content and delivery of mum's eulogy. As you know my mum was a non -practicing Catholic, but there were two visitors at the funeral who are. Both of them commented on how refreshing it was to hear such a personal and accurate service, free from formal adherence to religious protocol.
I thank you again for your professional, caring and respectful service. You did my mum proud and I am sure she would have been very pleased.
On behalf of everyone who came to celebrate E’s life with us yesterday I would like to thank you for the warm and comforting service you gave and for your kind words and the wonderful personal touches you added for us with made it perfect. We received so many comments afterwards to say how lovely the service was.
Thank you so much for all your efforts in preparing and presenting the service today for mum. Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy but we felt that we were in very capable hands from the moment we first met you. Everyone has said how well you put over the service which was well balanced and a great comfort to us all, thank you once again.
S and C
Thank you again, you are really appreciated and very skilled at what you do - it was 'just right'. I would like to say that you gave a wonderful service for our brother IG yesterday. All the family have praised the way you presented it and were very happy that IG had a such a lovely send off. He will be at peace now. Thank you again
From all the family
I wanted to take the opportunity to express my sincere appreciation of the very sympathetic way that you led the funeral of DK last Thursday.Your direction of the service ensured an occasion that conveyed the perfect balance between the sadness and grief of D's death and the joyous celebration of a life lived to the full. It was patently obvious that you had given a lot of time, thought and care to put together an accurate and very sensitive account of D's life, his achievements and his brave battle against cancer over the past two years. The service gave [his wife] a huge amount of comfort and it was exactly what she had hoped it would
Thank you for the service yesterday the balance of the solemnity and remembrance of [my aunt] was spot on. I know ranking a funeral service seems unusual but I felt yesterday's was the best I have been to.
