Celebration of Life Ceremonies


If you’re in the sad position of having to arrange a funeral service, I’m very sorry for your loss.  I’m here to help you and your family to have the kind of ceremony that’s right for your loved one.



I was very pleased with everything and thank her very much for making the occasion a fitting tribute


Times are changing

Families today may have a different attitude to funerals because religion is becoming less important to many. This has meant a growth in personalised ceremonies created by a Celebrant like me.   This is now the most popular choice in many areas of the country. 

A Celebration of Life Ceremony created specifically for your loved one allows you to have total freedom in the way you say goodbye. There are no rules so you can have exactly what you want..

Personalised Ceremonies


Each ceremony is as individual as the person whose life you’re celebrating.

A Celebration of Life Ceremony reflects the unique character and achievements of your loved one. Each ceremony is a one-off, that acknowledges your family’s grief and loss but celebrates a life well lived.

You can choose prayers and hymns.  Or poetry, readings and music which mean something to you or your loved one. I’ll make the ceremony as uplifting as possible in the circumstances, as we celebrate the life, character and achievements of your loved one.



Thank you on behalf of all my family for your kind care and attention and hard work with my dad’s funeral

Celebration of Life Ceremony at a venue of your choosing


Did you know that you can have the ceremony at a venue of your choice?

Your local local crematorium is often the ‘go to’ place for the Ceremony because you may not know there are other options available to you.  In fact it’s possible to have your Ceremony at a different venue should you want to.  And I also officiate ceremonies in the early evening or at the weekend so that more family members and friends will be able to come along.  There’s no reason why children can’t come along if you choose to have the Celebration of Life Ceremony in a more child-friendly environment instead of at the Crematorium.

You might choose a venue that means something to your family or had a special meaning for your loved one.  If they were a sports fan you could hold it at their sports club. Football, Golf and Rugby Clubs all have facilities for this type of occasion, and you could hire the venue on a day and time to suit you. Perhaps you’d prefer to hire a different type of venue such as a restaurant, a hotel venue, a community room, or maybe you’d like to use your home or garden if there’s enough room. There are many different options available and I’d be happy to answer any questions and give my advice.

It’s always an honour and a privilege to create a goodbye ceremony for your loved one, and I’m here to ensure you have exactly the kind of Ceremony that you want.  And that you have the Ceremony wherever you choose, whether that’s in the local Crematorium or another venue of your own choice.

If you need help to choose readings, poetry and music I’m here for you.  If you’d like your family and friends to take an active part in it, with personal tributes that is always so special and I fully recommend it.


If you’re seeking a Celebrant to craft the most touching and personal celebration of life, I cannot recommend Sharon highly enough
