A funeral marks a significant event, the passing of a life, the crossing of a threshold. When somebody dies, it is often a very profound and emotional time for their family and the community who loved them. I am an independent funeral celebrant, trained by Green Fuse. I will meet with you, take time to listen to the stories and memories you hold dear, and in this way gain a true sense of the person you have lost so that I can compose a beautiful and individual funeral which truly reflects their character and respects their spiritual beliefs, be they affiliated to a certain religion or not. I will bring them centre stage, right into the hearts and minds eye of those who gather to say goodbye. I can provide you with resources such as poems, readings and music, so that you, the family and friends, can participate in any aspect of the preparation and holding of the ceremony as you wish. I recognise that ceremony created with warmth, care and compassion, can provide deep solace, a space to celebrate a unique and special life, as well as tenderly mourn a loss.
