Funerals

The professional funeral Celebrant of choice in Sussex and Surrey, I create beautiful farewells centred on stories, and marking the achievements, of the deceased.

Without imposing my choices, I aim to help the deceased person’s family reach decisions about the content of the ceremony.  Depending on circumstances, I usually meet with the family to take their instructions and learn about the deceased.  I carefully prepare and check the eulogy and liaise with those chosen to share memories.  And I can provide resources and suggestions that assist the family to choose the most appropriate music and quotations (poetry and prose).

A calming presence, I arrive in good time on the day of the funeral to greet the mourners and conduct the ceremony.  As your professional celebrant, I create, facilitate and advise, working in close collaboration with the family and the funeral director.
