One of the greatest gifts we can give to someone at the end of their life is a funeral that captures the spirit and essence of that person.
Often traditional funeral services are impersonal and more about tradition than the actual person.
I care deeply that everyone should be remembered for the spirit and person they were and as a professional Funeral Celebrant I have the honour to assist families in saying a worthy and respectful goodbye to their loved one.
I listen to the family and friends to capture the essence and personality of the person and then to assist in providing a service that is fitting and unique.
As an Independent Funeral Celebrant I am not tied to the ceremonies of any belief. I simply believe in providing a respectful and unique family memory.
During this difficult time I appreciate that families are grieving for their loved one and I try to ensure that the true character of the person will be presented in the way you want. I do this by coming along for a home visit, being available for unlimited contact and phone calls, providing a draft eulogy for approval, agreeing the order of service with you and providing a copy of this for your use, if required.
I also present the eulogy and service in the way and style that you wish.
You may have already contacted a Funeral Director and they may not know that you have a more of a choice than just local religious or humanist representatives. If this is the case then please let me know and I will contact your Funeral Director.
Please note that there is no fee for children under the age of 16.

Just a few words to thank Jayne for the lovely service she conducted for Gordon Shepherd (shep), on the 28th January 2019. Her description of of Gordon’s life was perfect. I cannot speak highly enough of her delivery of a very personal account of Gordon, who we all loved dearly.
Thank you so much from the Laird family and the Shepherd family.
Thank you for your kind words Ian, it was an honour for me!
