Certified Independent Civil Funeral Celebrant serving The North East of England.

“Ready to be your voice, when you can’t find the words”

What does a Civil Funeral Celebrant do?

Civil celebrants can lead a non religious service or alternatively services with some religious content included: such as prayers or hymns that were perhaps important to the person who has died.

A civil celebrant is not religious and focuses on remembering and celebrating the life of the deceased. The words spoken during a civil funeral or memorial service are decided by family or friends, with the support of the funeral celebrant.

A celebrant helps you plan an order of service and ensures that it reflects how you want the person to be remembered. You will be assisted to choose funeral poems, readings, songs or hymns that you would like to include in the service.

A celebrant will meet with you and any family or friends involved to discuss your wishes and ideas. You will be asked to discuss the deceased and talk about their lives, who they were and what they meant to you. This information will be used to write an individual and personal eulogy to be delivered at the ceremony by the Funeral Celebrant.

Sometimes, we just can’t find the words that we want to say. I can help you with this and lessen some of the worry at this most difficult time.
