As celebrants, it is our job to give your loved-one the ceremony they deserve – we are passionate about providing a send-off that reflects the person they were. From a music-and-poetry-filled celebration of life, to a quieter goodbye, we’ll create a ceremony that is truly unique and reflects the person they were. We’ll get together, get the tissues out, and take the time to chat about the person they were – what made them who they were, the things they loved, why you loved them and even what drove you mad! And, together, we can create a service that they’d have been truly proud of.

If you would like a memorial service for a person who died some time ago, or more recently, but you were unable to have a funeral service, please feel free to get in touch.

Praise for Kate and Kate:

Dear Kate, My sincere and heartfelt thanks for the Funeral service for my wife on Thursday. The service was extremely moving and beautifully conducted by yourself. I was sorry that you were unable to join us afterwards but understand that you have other commitments.  The feed back that I am getting from friends and relations is “what a lovely service” and was appreciated by everyone. Mr F

Dear Kate, Thank you very much for your advice and support today. A sunshine send off for my old Ma. The grandchildren and so many other relatives and friends remarked to me how it was pitched so right for her. Your organisation and guidance was subtle and so apt. Made a great day for us. Thank you so much. Very best wishes. A

Dear Kate, I just wanted to thank you again personally for the refreshing service for my brother, R, yesterday – I think it went very well and the script was read by you in such a way that it felt as if you had know Richard. It was warm, friendly, professional and refreshing and many of the guests commented on what a ‘lovely’ service it was. It made a very sad day a memorable one. And gave closure. All the best to you. D

Hi. We attended the funeral of our very good friend K at Hastings Crematorium today and I just wanted to say how lovely you made the service, Kate. K would have hated anything religious but your delivery was spot on and suited him perfectly. Thank you x TS.

Dear Kate,  A huge “thank-you” for Monday’s service.  It was exactly as Mum would have wanted and you delivered everything beautifully.  There were so many lovely comments from everyone who attended and they all said that they would like something similar when their turn comes! Sincere thanks. Love.

What do to if you would like to have Kateor Kate as the celebrant at your loved-one’s funeral:

If you are organising the funeral yourself, just give us a call and we’ll take you through our bit of the arrangements. We can offer advice on all aspects of your funeral service.

If you are using a Funeral Director – just go to your chosen Funeral Director to start making arrangements for the funeral, they will ask you if you have thought about a celebrant.  Just say you would like either Kate Tym or Kate Dyer, and they will then get in touch with us to start the ball rolling.


Kate and Kate are both fully trained by The Fellowship of Independent Celebrants and are members of The Good Funeral Guild.
