About me

About Me

I am a fully trained and experienced Civil Funeral Celebrant serving bereaved families throughout the North East of England. I am a qualified teacher and hold a BA Hons in Health & Social Care. I enjoy both academic and creative writing and penning poetry too. I was also a Foster Carer for 10 years and I am passionate about caring for and empowering others. I have studied counselling and advocacy skills and such training has helped to challenge my abundance of empathy into areas that provide strength and support to others. 

I was sadly introduced to the role of the Funeral Celebrant when my most wonderful mother passed away from Huntington’s Disease. Much that I do is in memory of her and I donate to the Huntington’s charity from every funeral service I deliver. I am a qualified member of the Association of Independent Celebrants (AOIC) and am available to travel both nationally and internationally if required. I can be contacted via telephone, email, text, social media and through the contact page on this website.

Presentation Script – I will supply a presentation copy of the ceremony for you to keep.

Cost – My fee is £220 which includes meetings, communication, conducting the Funeral Ceremony, a total of 50 miles of travel and provision of a presentation script. Extra mileage is charged @ 45p per mile.

I am currently affiliated with the most professional Funeral Directors in the region.

My fee is usually paid to the funeral director when you pay your final bill. It forms part of the disbursements along with cremation fees, flowers, etc. 

If a Memorial service is of similar length and content to a funeral service then the same fees as a funeral ceremony will apply. For anything involving a much longer or more involved event please get in touch, as fees will vary depending upon what is required.
