Moving and Meaningful Funeral and Memorial Ceremonies

The end of a human life brings with it changes in the lives and loves of all involved. There can be shifts in relationships, roles and responsibilities. There might be emotional turmoil and lots of unanswered questions. When someone dies, I’m here as your companion, coach and celebrant in crossing the threshold from life to death and from loss to life.

Funerals with Heart and Soul

I’ll work with you and your family to create a carefully planned, unique and beautiful ceremony that sensitively portrays the beliefs and values of the person who has died.

I endeavour to listen deeply, be compassionate and sensitive and to work with integrity, professionalism, care and attention.

Companionship in dying - from Crossing the Threshold - Celebrant Wells and Mendips
I am deeply grateful for the service that you provided for me and my family as celebrant for my wife K’s funeral. The genuine sensitive care, dignity, sound advice, decision support and added value which you provided as celebrant was exceptional and very much appreciated at a time when I was feeling lost. I am particularly grateful for your own wonderful words on the day which absolutely resonated with who K was to us all. Your handling of everyone’s input to the order of service and your pivotal role in ensuring that things ran so smoothly on the day was superb. I would be very happy to recommend your services to any of my family, friends or colleagues.
