Business Summary

The Solent Celebrant

Following the death of my father last April, I organised and spoke at his funeral, I realised that a good funeral will help with the grieving process and, even in the times of Covid with lots of restrictions, I felt that I had given my dear father a fitting send off.  This triggered a  change of direction in my career and I began my own Celebrancy business having been a charity fundraising manager for nearly 30 years.

As a registered civil funeral celebrant, I offer a bespoke service to families who do not wish to have a minister conduct the service.  When you lose someone one of the first questions a funeral director will ask you is do you want a Minister or Celebrant to conduct your service. Over 73% of funerals today are conducted by celebrants but that is not to say that the ceremony cannot contain religious readings, hymns or prayers.

I will meet with you and suggest content for your loved one’s service, have as much or as little input as you wish – family members may want to write the eulogy and present at the ceremony and that is fine.  Some families wish me to write the whole service and that too is fine. If writing the eulogy, I will ask you lots of questions about your memories and times with your loved one, to write a pen picture of what they were like as a person and this can contain wording from the family too.  I will get your approval of the eulogy and work with you to ensure the tone is appropriate and the content correct.  I will work alongside the funeral director to conduct the service.  My fees are included in the fees of the Funeral Director.  I can officiate at Chapel of Rests, Cemeteries or wherever the service is held.
