Funerals

It would be an honour to help your family pay tribute to your loved one and to help you create the ceremony that perfectly reflects their life and gives them the farewell that they so richly deserve.

If you would like me to take a funeral, I will always meet you personally and learn as much as possible about your loved one and what they meant to you and your family. I will then write a ceremony, and the eulogy if you’d like me to, that personally embraces your loved one’s life with warmth and love. I will ensure that you see the words beforehand and will give you a full, printed copy of the whole ceremony as a keepsake. You will be able to include your favourite poems, music and songs, or hymns, prayers and readings as you wish, and together we can create an atmosphere that perfectly expresses your love and your loss.

Simply contact me to arrange a time to meet, or give my details to your Funeral Director letting them know how you would like the funeral. I will provide a beautiful, memorable ceremony for you and your loved one.

After the funeral, you might want to consider a memorial service, perhaps on a later date, and in a location that is very special to you. I can also help you arrange a scattering of ashes, a dedication of the headstone, or a simple service on the anniversary of the funeral.

I also offer a Funeral Planning Service for those who want to put their house in order and have their last wishes recorded and respected. I will arrange a personal visit during which we can decide on everything you want to include in your service.  Then I will produce the service for you so that it can be safely placed with your will. This will alleviate your family of a great deal of worry.
