Funeral Ceremonies

Losing a loved one is one of the hardest life events any of us will go through.  It is therefore important to create a unique and special ceremony to honour the life of your loved one.

Arranging a funeral can be overwhelming and that is why I am here to help and guide you.  I will do everything I can to make this process smooth.

A Civil Funeral ceremony is a personal celebration of the life of your loved one.  The ceremony can be non-religious or the ceremony can include some religious elements such as readings, hymns and prayers.  The ceremony will normally be held at a crematorium, at a graveyard or any other place you would wish.


What I will/can do for you: -

  • Once you contact me, I will arrange to meet with you, your family, and any friends involved to discuss your wishes and ideas.  If you do not live nearby, I can easily arrange a video or telephone call with you.  We will keep in regular contact in the run up to the ceremony.
  • I will ask you in detail about the person who has died so I can get a sense and understanding of the life of your loved one.
  • I will ensure that the ceremony is in accordance with your wishes and help you plan the content of the ceremony. I can give you assistance with readings, poems, music choice, prayers etc should you require assistance with these.
  • I will then use all the information you have given me to create a memorable ceremony.


A memorial service is very similar to a funeral, with the exception that the body is not present.  This may be for a number of reasons. 


A memorial service might also be held for a larger gathering of family, friends and colleagues, following a smaller, more intimate funeral service and burial.  It may also be conducted to include the scattering of ashes at your loved ones’ favourite place.
