The Final Goodbye – Making a Hard Time Easier

Funerals, memorials, celebrations of life…

Funerals, memorials, celebrations of life, scattering of ashes, living memorials; however you would like to celebrate the end of a life, as a Celebrant who works in funerals, I can help you make a hard time just that little bit easier.

If you are looking for a Celebrant to help celebrate that person’s (or animal – I do pet funerals too) life in a way which is appropriate for them, and who is modern, friendly and professional, I can guide you through the process whilst remaining compassionate and understanding during this difficult time.

I’m happy to work with anyone planning a final goodbye, and am a calming presence during what can feel a confusing time.


I’ve worked in planning a variety of these celebrations and memorials, including:

  • Working with people given a terminal diagnosis who wish to plan their funeral before they are too ill to do so
  • Suitably recognising those who may not always have been the easiest or popular of individuals
  • Sensitively planning a suitable ceremony for those who have killed themselves or have died in difficult circumstances
  • Conducting memorials which focus on the positive impact the individual has on many lives
  • Small, intimate celebrations with only immediate family
  • Large funerals, acknowledging the impact the individual had on multiple lives
  • Funerals for babies, children or young people
  • Memorials for babies who have been miscarried or were stillborn

Where A celebration can take place

Most people first think of a funeral home when they think about a funeral. But, there are options, many which people aren’t aware. For example, I’ve delivered celebrations:

  • Sports Clubs
  • Pubs
  • Top of a mountain
  • On a beach
  • In a park
  • Crematorium
  • Within a home
