NON-RELIGIOUS FUNERAL?

Are you planning a

I can help you talk through your options, and together we can come up with a truly unique way to say goodbye

I strongly believe that we should all have access to the type of funeral we want. With around 40% of the UK population now describing themselves as non-religious, being able to choose the way in which we say goodbye is becoming increasingly important.

Trained by Humanists UK, I work closely with friends and family to create meaningful, individual ceremonies that celebrate the life that has been and that reflect the person who has died. Your funeral, your way.

Eight years ago my father died very suddenly and my sisters and I found ourselves arranging his funeral.  We'd never had to arrange a funeral before and felt bit lost as to what to do for the best. One thing we were sure of was that we wanted a non-religious funeral, one that reflected our dad's love of music and his personality.  We found a humanist celebrant, and knew straightaway that it was the right fit for us.

 

My background is in care provision, teaching and community work, particularly with anti-poverty charities.  I am also a member of Humanists UK Pastoral Support Network (think non-religious hospital and prison chaplaincy) and am currently training as a volunteer with Addenbrookes Hospital to be able to support patients and their families.  In 2020 I will start training to become a death doula, providing care and support to people at the end of their lives.

 

I am based in Cambridge but work all across East Anglia.  Please take a look around my web site for more information on the services I provide, and do get in touch if you have any questions.
