Creating a ceremony to celebrate the life of someone unique and special often in unexpected circumstances, can be difficult and overwhelming.

Even in the midst of sadness and loss, I can support and guide you. Together we can create a tribute to your loved one that is respectful and memorable.

Believing this is difficult, still somehow we must try,
The saddest word we know will always be ‘Goodbye’.

Funerals FAQs

Can we include family members or friends in the service?
Yes, they can do a reading or place significant items on or near the coffin.
Who should present the eulogy?
This is usually a close family member or long standing friend. Ask the person to keep the eulogy to no longer than 8 – 10 minutes if possible. It is important to keep it down to a reasonable length.
The deceased was not a church attending person and didn’t want anything religious but we would like to include a nice poem or reading.
There are many lovely readings that can be used and they need not be religious in any way. I can help you select something appropriate.
The deceased had a large extended family, how can we include grandchildren etc.?
Perhaps have each grandchild bring a single flower up and place it on or near the coffin. As an alternative, they could bring something of significance to them such as knitting or a special story book, war medals or a fishing rod.
Some members of the family are estranged from each other how do we deal with that?
We will speak to the funeral Director and arrange to have special seating for those people, so that there won’t be any embarrassment. We could also make sure that people from both parties have a role to play in the ceremony – albeit separately.
