'With her patient, diligent but sensitive gathering of information & her sympathetic approach to the whole process, Ana made a difficult time much easier than expected. The service went wonderfully, getting compliments from friends & family for weeks afterwards. Funerals are supposed to be a celebration of life & this one most certainly was. Thanks Ana.' Ian
Celebrations of Life can be magical, irrespective of budget, from the TRADITIONAL to the MORE UNUSUAL, including:
-symbolic ceremonies eg. metaphors such as train or tree of life
-stories/tributes out of the hat
-'life snapshots' from near and dear
-traditional details about life, love & achievements
-life told through readings and music.
Choose the Right Celebrant for You
You have every right to choose your own Celebrant and Service type. If you use a Funeral Director, just give the Funeral Director my details. Please ask the FD to check with me that I'm free BEFORE booking a service time, to ensure that I can work with you. The Funeral Director will deal with all the fees; you would not need to pay me directly.
I am not a Humanist Minister. As an Independent Celebrant, I offer Celebration of Life funeral services with religious or spiritual elements, or services with no such elements.
A Celebration of Life focusses on the life lived, people loved and achievements (whether large or small). I never expect family to write eulogies, but if a family member or friend wishes to read or write a eulogy or poem that is fine too!
In all cases, I work with tact and sensitivity.

Choose a Funeral Type which Suits Your Budget and Wishes
Every Celebration of Life needs to be as unique as each person truly is, not a 'cut and paste' or conveyor-belt service.
I have 26 years' experience of pastoral guidance and support as a teacher of teenagers and adults. As a Celebrant since 2016, I am happy to help you find the right providers to exactly meet your needs and budget. I will research for you so you don't commit yourself to something unsuitable.
If you wish to use a Funeral Director, I can accompany you on visits if this is helpful.
I provide a Funeral Wishlist for FREE for you complete and keep with important paperwork. I will happily help you to complete this form, for a small charity donation to Prospect Hospice, GWH's Brighter Futures, or Kidney UK.
