I am an independent and professionally qualified bespoke Funeral Celebrant. I’m based in Winchester and work throughout Hampshire and the surrounding areas.
I work with you either at the time of need or help you plan a funeral in advance. In both cases I will create a unique funeral ceremony which reflects the personality, beliefs and interests of the person who has died. You may wish to choose poems, readings, music, songs or prayers to include in the ceremony. If you need some help, I can also guide you with these choices. I can lead the ceremony or I can support you, family members or friends to participate as much as you would like to.
As a civil celebrant I invest time talking to you, and others close to the person who has died, about your loved one. I will explore what you want to remember and celebrate about that person; what they enjoyed, what their achievements are and what you will miss about them. If you, or they, have specific religious or spiritual beliefs these can be reflected in the funeral ceremony. For families who prefer a totally non-religious service, I will also produce a beautiful, personal ceremony. Some people may think of this as a humanist funeral.
Bespoke Funeral Celebrant
Each funeral ceremony I write is bespoke, created specifically for that individual person, so it is genuinely unique. I have received some wonderful testimonials and thank yous from the families I have worked with, many of whom say it is as if I was a friend or family member of the person who has died. You can see these on my Testimonials page.
I am based in Winchester, and will conduct face-to-face funerals in the surrounding areas of Hampshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Dorset and Sussex. This includes working with families based in: Winchester, Romsey, Southampton, Eastleigh, Basingstoke, Andover, Fareham, Portsmouth, Petersfield, Salisbury, Chichester, Havant, the New Forest, Bournemouth and Reading. I am also happy to travel further afield if required. I am not a humanist celebrant (as I am not affiliated to Humanists UK) but I do create and lead non-religious funerals.
Online funerals and simple Act of Remembrance ceremonies for use at home can be provided to families living anywhere in the UK. Please see Remote Funerals for more details.
