What will I do as your funeral celebrant?

If you would like me to be your celebrant at a funeral you are arranging I will design a ceremony that will include what you and your loved ones would want. My aim is to always create a meaningful ceremony that reflects the person who has just passed away and to give you a chance to celebrate their life.

I will arrange to meet with you and members of the family to discuss the ceremony and will ask you questions about your loved one in order to get a sense of who they were and what they meant to you.

If a family member or friend is planning on giving a eulogy or a reading I can assist with that as well, even read it on their behalf if they want. I will discuss with you the songs, readings and other elements that you would like to include.

On the day of the funeral, I will meet you at the venue where the funeral is taking place.

During the ceremony, If you are giving a eulogy or reading, I will invite you to come to the front of the congregation when it is your time.


"Thank you for today. The way you told each persons story and shared our memories were very well delivered and made the service very personal. Everyone has found this very touching and we’re very pleased.

The family would all like to thank you."

"I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Vince for all his efforts following the passing of my beloved wife. Vince was highly professional, whilst at the same time being extremely compassionate. He visited me personally and ensured all arrangements were carried out according to the family's wishes. The funeral service was a lovely send off, and Vince's readings of our eulogies were wonderful.

Thank you again."

"I want to thank you for being the celebrant for my sister’s funeral, you managed it with a lot of dignity which was appreciated. I also appreciated your help with the order of service."
