Throughout the pandemic, restrictions have applied to varying degrees, for funerals. As it's almost impossible to keep up with the ever-changing rules we suggest your first port of call is www.gov.uk/coronavirus Please also feel free to get in touch with us directly and we can discuss the options that are available to you at that time.
As independent celebrants, we are passionate about changing the face of funerals in the UK. There's no right or wrong way to conduct an end-of-life celebration, it's whatever feels right for you and whatever you feel captures and reflects the person who has died and sums up what made them them.
We're all about choice. We want you to know that you can hold your final farewell in a barn, or a village hall, or even in your back garden and that, by separating the cremation or burial from the celebration of life, you completely change the atmosphere and free yourself up to provide a much more personal experience.
A crematorium or church service is absolutely right for some people and can be a really meaningful and sincere send-off and we're very happy to facilitate a crematorium funeral if that's what you would like. But, we also want you to know, that there are other approaches available and support you in exploring those too. It really is all about empowering you to have the funeral that you want - we're all so unique and individual in life that's what we want to reflect after death, too.
Get in touch with us and we can explain to you how a ceremony conventionally runs - that gives us a starting point - from there we aim to facilitate you in whatever you might want or need to be included in your ceremony. We can make suggestions and guide you through the process from start to finish. We will then write a ceremony script, which you will have approval of... so, if there's anything you want adding, taking out or amending, we'll keep tweaking until it's exactly how you'd like it to be.
We can recommend Funeral Directors to you, or other organisations, such as end-of-life Doulas, who can support you in your end-of-life and after-death care. You don't even have to be dead to get in touch! We can work with families after someone has died but, what is also becoming more common, is to work with someone who is still alive - planning your own funeral can actually be really rewarding.
You can book us directly, even if you are using a Funeral Director. Or, you can book us via a Funeral Director.
