funerals and memorials
Say goodbye, your way
Funerals do not all have to follow the same format. As a funeral celebrant, I can plan and deliver a service that is as individual as the person it commemorates.
Working closely with you, I will create a bespoke ceremony that reflects the beliefs and values of the person who has died, and allows you to celebrate their life and share precious memories of them. It is probably a difficult and bewildering time for you but you can count on me for a considerate and compassionate approach. Your wishes are my priority and you can be assured of choice when making decisions on the content of the service. Tributes, music, poetry and prayers can all be arranged if you wish, and you can contribute and participate in the service as much, or as little as you like.
It is your decision as to whether the ceremony has some religious content, or none at all, and I can conduct the service at a crematorium, cemetery or natural burial ground, as well as other locations providing consent has been given in advance.
I am happy to deliver funeral and memorial services in and around the Kingston-upon-Thames area, Greater London, Surrey, Wimbledon, Twickenham, Teddington, Putney, Tooting, Chiswick and Morden.
I first meet you at your home or a place of your choice to explain the various options for your service, answer your questions and find out exactly what your wishes are for the service. Based on our discussion, I then prepare a script that you can approve and if necessary, amend, well in advance of the service.
This ensures that on the day you will know exactly what to expect. The service will be carried out in a professional yet compassionate manner, allowing you to say farewell and pay tribute to your loved one.
