Funeral Celebrant

Covering Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Rugby, Coventry and Milton Keynes

Providing Religious and Non-Religious Funeral Services.

I am qualified Funeral Director (Dip. F.D) and Embalmer (M.B.I.E) and started in the business in the 1970’s. Since 1994 I have conducted Funerals as a Minister and Celebrant.

I avoid the phrase “expert” but I have the experience of over 10,000 funerals behind me. My own life experience enables me to provide personalised funeral services that reflect the life of the deceased and the needs of our clients to a very high level.

Providing Religious and Non-Religious Funeral Services

(Many people who ask for a Non-Religious Funeral service often simply mean “not too Churchy” or very traditional, rather than a strictly Humanist event)

Focussing on discovering as much as is possible about the deceased, I spend time with families and individuals creating the service that they want and describe.

Every aspect of the Funeral Day and the Service is considered, and I am usually able to reply to any practical questions that might arise.

My experience enables me to sport and reassure families, and enable them to leave the Funeral knowing that they have been to something positive and encouraging.

 

I am happy to listen and talk to anyone who is trying to find the most appropriate approach for a relative’s funeral service. Whatever your background or belief I am able to confidently perform exactly what you want.

When family members or Friends wish to pay their own tributes (sometime referred to as a Eulogy) I can give advice and information to enable them to do it well, and within the time allowed.

I am familiar and comfortable with all walks of life. My wife says “You’re not a stuffy Vicar”! Often described as down to earth, but kind and considerate too.
