Let me be your funeral celebrant
I am sorry to learn that you have a need to make funeral arrangements, but I would like to reassure you that I am here to honour the life of your loved one.
A celebrant led funeral service is just that, a celebration of life
Whereas a traditional, clergy-led service, tends to be much more formal and morbid, a celebrant funeral ceremony is completely personal to you. Working with the next of kin, I will write and deliver a tribute to your loved one that is truly reflective of the life that they have lived.
Each service is completely bespoke and can include religious content, such as prayers and readings, if that is the next of kin’s wishes. I will also work with you to select the most appropriate music choices for the service and can also suggest suitable poems and readings.
I always encourage members of the deceased’s family to take an active part in the ceremony, as I believe this provides a truly personal element to the proceedings. However, I recognise that the enormity of the occasion can sometimes overwhelm people and therefore I will be right by your side and ready to take over if it all becomes a bit too much.
To be asked to lead a funeral service is both an honour and a privilege. I always put my heart, and soul, into each service I am asked to take and I am always touched by the feedback that I receive from the family after the service.

“During difficult times you need to rely on professionals to ensure that everything is taken care of.
When Dave visited our home, his compassion and understanding gave us a supreme confidence that our mum’s service was in good hands.
Dave listened to our stories and bought them to life in the service, he did our mum’s memory proud.
His interpretation of what we said was insightfully accurate and we can’t thank him enough for providing an amazing service from start to finish.
I wholeheartedly recommend Dave. A true professional who showed genuine compassion. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the service was.
Thank you, Dave, from us all.”
