When we lose a loved one, we can feel so many different emotions. There is no right or wrong way to grieve or time-limit; everybody is different.

For thousands of years, funerals have been a means of expressing our beliefs, thoughts and feelings about the death of someone we love.

Celebrants from the UK Society of Celebrants are specially trained to design a unique ceremony that reflects the person’s wishes and desires.

We are supportive and understanding and will work with you to structure a ceremony that is a fitting goodbye to your loved one.

You may be reading this because you are grieving, if so my heart goes out to you.

The funeral ceremony: helps us acknowledge that someone we love has died. ... and allows us to reflect on the meaning of life and death, a funeral can be the start of our healing. 

More and more people are turning towards having a non-religious individual ceremony that is unique.

So many of us talk about the future, wedding plans, how many children we would like to have and other aspirations. But we don’t talk about death.

Death comes to us all, it is part of the circle of life, and there is no escape from it.  You may be reading this because you want to plan your own funeral so that your loved ones don’t have to. 

Because not many people talk about what they want to happen at their funeral those left behind are often unsure about what to do. 

By pre-planning a ceremony this will be of great help to the people left behind as it will be everything that you wanted it to be.
