‘When you did Bev’s and my nan’s funerals I think that you just put people at ease from the first conversation by being yourself and not pretending to be someone else… building trust from the start that it’s ok to tell the dodgy story and swear and tell someone’s real life story. And I think that’s really important when saying goodbye to someone that you love. You always do us proud and it’s such a shitty time, that just knowing you’re there to take the pressure off makes a massive difference.’ Charlie, 2021
Funerals led by celebrants can be a very meaningful, personal way to say goodbye to a loved one in a non-religious way that honours their life.
I became a celebrant through a love of meeting people and getting to know you by hearing the stories of you and your loved ones. It’s a privilege for me to work with people on such important occasions. My job is to get to know you enough to make sure the wording, content and tone of the ceremony are just right.
I am based in Liverpool but conduct funerals across Merseyside. If you want to ask about me to lead a ceremony… or if you just want to ask a few questions, please feel free to contact me.
‘Thank you for the lovely service you did for Dad – I could hear him laughing in the coffin.’ Paula, 2020
