Professional Membership

I am a member of the Institute of Civil Funerals and as such I partake in regular assessment and support.

Working with the Family

After initial contact with your Funeral Director, I will visit you and your family,  to discuss your service arrangements including music and poetry/reading choices.

Celebration of Life

After discussion with yourselves, I will write a 'Celebration of Life' Eulogy.

Family approval is paramount, and so I will keep in close contact with yourselves, ensuring your wishes are adhered to. 

Music and Reading Choices

Your choice of music and poetry can reflect your loved one's life and loves. I can liaise with your Funeral Director  to select your music choices, and I can assist with your poem or reading selection if required.
