For me there is something very special about a funeral led by a celebrant. I have attended a number of celebrant family and friends' funerals-including those of my own parents- and I have always found comfort that their life story was told in ways that best remembered them for who they were, what they stood for and what they believed in. Whilst a sad occasion remembering someone who has departed, it can also be a joyous celebration of a life lived.
I will spend time listening to you talk about the person you have just lost as you remember them in ways you want to remember them. We will talk about the things you, and others, would like to include -personal tributes, music, blessings- or I can suggest some if you would prefer.I will then write a bespoke ceremony that reflects your wishes with empathy and sensitivity.
Funerals-cremations and burials
Scattering of ashes
If I should die and leave you here awhile,
Be not like others, sore undone, who keep
Long vigils by the silent dust, and weep.
For my sake - turn again to life and smile,
Nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do
Something to comfort other hearts than thine.
Complete those dear unfinished tasks of mine
And I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
