Celebrations of Life/Funeral Services
'With her patience, 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

If you are confused where to start planning a funeral/celebration of life - please let me help
As an Independent Celebrant, I differ from a minister or a Humanist celebrant, as am able to offer Celebration of Life services with religious or spiritual elements, or services with no such elements.
With my experience working with lovely, trusted Funeral Directors, Natural Burial Grounds and Direct Cremation providers I am happy to help you find the right provider for your needs and budget.
My funeral services are written after hours of listening to what the person planning their own funeral, or the family of the deceased person, want. I believe that the focus should be more on the life lived, people loved and achievements (whether large or small).
In all cases, I work with tact and sensitivity.
Each life celebration needs to be as unique as each person truly is. I do not believe in 'cut and paste' funeral services, so I limit the number of bookings I will take so that I can totally concentrate on each family. Service locations and content can also be very different from one person to another.
Celebrations of Life can be magical, irrespective of budget, from TRADITIONAL AND 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.
