most important things I bring as a funeral celebrant

suffering the consequences of death

the best possible ceremonies honoring those who
have gone and those who are left behind

light of my maturity and wide experience, I am comfortable
in dealing with all kinds of loss, including the difficult
circumstances with which other celebrants may not be
comfortable, such as the death of children and young
people, or death by suicide.

which records and celebrates the life of the loved one
who has passed away. It is in many ways the centre piece
of a civil funeral ceremony. I can show you how to prepare

one, or write one for you if you may not be able to
do it yourself
