Funeral Ceremony

Whether you've chosen a cremation or a burial, it's so important in those early stages of grief to make sure you get the ceremony that is right for you, and that is a true reflection of the person who has died.

I work closely with family and friend to incorporate their memories into a unique ceremony that acknowledges loss but equally celebrates the life that has been, including readings, music and personal memories and reflections.  I'll be more than happy to talk through any elements you would like to include.

 

After the ceremony I provide a presentation copy of the ceremony for you to keep (both printed and electronic). I will also liaise with your chosen funeral director to ensure the day runs smoothly.

Fee ~ £200

Includes: face to face meeting (with follow up phone calls as needed), officiating on the day of the funeral, provision of printed and electronic presentation copies. All travel costs up to 40 miles (a small additional charge will be made for longer distances).

Memorial Service

You may choose not to have a burial or cremation, but might prefer to hold a memorial service at a later date.  This can be a celebratory occasion, with more time available than a typical funeral ceremony, where your guests can share their memories of the person who has died.

As with funeral ceremonies, I will work closely with you to create a truly unique occasion that celebrates the person who has died with memories, music and readings.  I can also help by liaising with your chosen venue on the logistics of your ceremony (such as technical or audio visual support) and producing an order of ceremony. I act as MC on the day, welcoming your guests and leading the ceremony. 

Fee ~ £250 - £350

(depending on requirements)

Includes: face to face meeting (with follow up phone calls as needed), officiating on the day, production of order of ceremony, liaising with venue, provision of printed and electronic presentation copies. All travel costs up to 40 miles (a small additional charge will be made for longer distances).

Internment or Scattering of Ashes

You may have chosen not to have a funeral but opt instead for a simple scattering or internment of your loved one's ashes in a place that is significant to them and you.  Together we will craft a simple, beautiful ceremony to mark this important occasion.

Fee ~ £75

Includes: face to face meeting (with follow up phone calls as needed), officiating on the day, production of order of ceremony, liaising with venue, provision of printed and electronic presentation copies. All travel costs up to 40 miles (a small additional charge will be made for longer distances).

Funeral Pre-planning

More and more people are choosing to plan ahead, making provision for their own funeral.  I can help by advising on what you need to consider and talking through what your wishes for the ceremony may be.

Fee ~ no charge

Includes: face to face meeting (with follow up phone calls/emails as needed), producing a written record of your plan (both printed and electronic copies).  All travel costs up to 40 miles (a small additional charge will be made for longer distances).
