Benefits of choosing an Independent Celebrant

Celebrant-led funeral and memorial services are carefully written and designed to create a memorable experience

for everybody present.


Arranging a funeral can be a distressing and challenging experience as you are faced with making many important decisions about the ceremony at a difficult time.

The Planning

I can help you make those decisions so that we can create a ceremony which expresses your cultural and religious traditions - or the clear wishes of the person who has died. 


A well planned funeral service or life celebration allows friends and relatives to celebrate the life of the person

they have lost, focusing on everything that made that person unique.

You can include any music, readings, poems and music

you choose so that your ceremony honours and commemorates your loved one's life,

I will work closely with you and your family and friends, with care and respect creating a unique and moving service. As I’m independent and not part of any faith or belief group I am free to create a non-religious or partly religious ceremony. 


On the Day

I will then lead your ceremony at a crematorium, chapel, natural burial ground or special place you have chosen. 

I encourage family or friends to participate by reading or playing music so that they feel that they are involved.    The ceremony can often be recorded and webcast.


The ceremony can bring comfort on the day

and also in the future as you look back and remember it.

I hope this helps you through your grief and towards healing.

Ruth was an invaluable help to us in planning and organising the funeral for our son. She helped us explore the possibilities for the occasion so that we could create something unique and highly personal. The whole process, as well as producing something “spot on”, helped us begin to cope with our loss.
