CELEBRATION OF LIFE FUNERALS

Recalling with Thanks the Life Lived and the Love Felt

​​​CHOOSING THE RIGHT CELEBRANT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

As an Independent Celebrant, I offer Celebration of Life funeral services with or without religious or spiritual elements. It is important to me to provide, with love and care, exactly the ceremony wished for.

A Celebration of Life focuses on the life lived, people loved and achievements large or small. It often is joyful and full of happy, fun memories. Personal, heartfelt contributions from family or friends – even children – are  welcome and I happily support anyone reading or wishing to be involved.

I work with tact and sensitivity and share my entire script for approval so that edits can be made. ​

You are free to choose your own Celebrant and Service type. If you use a Funeral Director, please pass them my details and ask them to check I’m available prior to fixing a service date and time.

A CEREMONY SUITING YOUR BUDGET & WISHES

Every Celebration of Life Should be as UNIQUE as the Person Celebrated

I have 26 years’ experience of pastoral guidance and support and became a Celebrant since 2016. This means I am totally used to working with people in a caring capacity. Supporting the bereaved, and even helping people plan their own funerals, is something I readily do.

Plan the Details of Your Own Celebration of Life ​

I provide a Funeral Wishlist at no cost, to complete and keep safely with key paperwork. These details will be so helpful for your grieving loved ones.

I will happily help you to complete this form for a small charity donation if this is affordable.

'A TRUE CELEBRATION OF LIFE'

‘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.’

'FIRST CHOICE OF CELEBRANT'

‘Ana is a fabulous celebrant, she was our chosen person to lead funerals for our families, Cornwall FD’s look no further, Ana should be your first choice of celebrant, you will not regret it.’

'HIGHLY RECOMMENDED'

Ana did the reading for my Father’s funeral. What a lovely lady. She spent several hours with myself and 2 sisters chatting about Dad. Diligently making notes. On the day of the funeral she delivered the reading with such feeling, making it so interesting and amusing. At the end she had taken the time to make up a little ditty about myself and sisters and the roles we played in the latter years of his life. Highly recommended.
