Funeral Ceremonies

Celebrate!!! This is not often a word associated with funerals, yet I believe that Funeral Ceremonies can be created in order to celebrate the life of the person that is no longer with us.

Farewells can indeed be difficult and sad, but how would the person you are saying farewell to have liked to have been remembered?

☆ Would they have wanted a party?

☆ Would they have wanted to see people laughing? Dancing? Singing?

☆ Did the person have a certain character or ways that made them, THEM?

☆ Did they have a hobby they were devoted to?

☆ Did they have a catchphrase that they were known for?

☆ How did they make you laugh or annoy you?!

☆ Did they have a favourite colour for everybody to wear?

☆ Any specific food they loved to eat or a favourite tipple?

These are questions that not many people think are normal to ask or think about when arranging a funeral ceremony.

This is my main ethos behind ceremonies I deliver. It is not always the traditional or preferred way, but my main aim is to indeed bring an element of celebration to what can be a very solemn occasion. The times are changing!

Often, little characteristics and foibles are missed out of services but when remembered are guaranteed to make those present laugh, smile and nod their heads saying ‘Aye, that was them alright’!!

As I am an Independent Celebrant, (not Humanist) which means I am open to all beliefs and philosophies be they non-religious, religious or spiritual. I create and perform ceremonies based on the specific beliefs of the person and their family.

Is there a special place that the celebrated person wanted to be laid to rest at? A woodland burial? A favourite park? Favourite pub? Favourite venue?

Between us we can arrange a ceremony to be held in a special location or place.
Being laid to rest in a favourite place means peace of mind and comfort but also it can mean a crackin’ good party!!

Booking a Funeral Ceremony with Me:

Funeral Directors are responsible for arranging the ceremonies for funerals and it is a service included in their fees. If you would like to specifically book my services for a funeral or memorial ceremony, just ask the Funeral Director that you are using to contact me.

I personally recommend Hayley Owen Funeral Directors and Darley Funeral Directors.
