Funerals

As an experienced Funeral Celebrant, I will look after you with a caring, compassionate and respectful approach, acknowledging your grief at this difficult time. Saying goodbye to a loved one after death is among life’s most painful events, but you are not alone. 

I will carefully create your special goodbye for a burial, a cremation or an interment. You may like the service to be religious, non-religious, spiritual or maybe even a mixture. It is yours and your loved one’s beliefs that we will represent.  I can help with music, psalms, prayers and readings to ensure your ceremony truly represents the life of whom we are celebrating. 

A beautiful Memorial service may also be created afterwards somewhere special to give your loved one the fitting send-off and tribute they really deserve. 

If you’d like some help in the scattering of ashes, I can make this a lovely ceremony for you and give you a helping hand to guide you through the process.

Whatever ceremony you are looking for, it will be crafted and delivered with love and great care.

Planning ahead for your funeral

Planning for the inevitable day of your passing in advance can really help your family.

Making sure your life story, or as it’s often referred to ‘The Eulogy’, is told just how you want it to be, takes a lot of pressure off those left behind at a difficult time for them.

Preparing alongside someone who can listen, structure and creatively write all the things you’d like to be said can be done in your own home, with no pressure, relaxed surroundings and the opportunity to see your whole ceremony written or just part written if that’s your choice, so you have peace of mind that you and your loved ones are looked after with one less thing to worry about which is in fact one very big thing.

All making this tough time a little easier all round.

I will help you think of the type of ceremony you’d like, religious, non religious, a little bit of religion, fun, relaxed, the very vibe that represents you. I’ll help you think of the music you’d like, Hymns perhaps, singing or no singing, there’s hundreds of wonderful and heartfelt poems to choose from, fun ones too and I offer a bespoke service to write one just for you, about you or a message from you.

Testimonials

Dear Tracey,

I just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday and to sorry that we did not have more time to speak afterwards.

Everyone thought the service was lovely and we had a great time afterwards at Marsh House.

Kind regards,

Michael

Morning Tracey,

Just a little message to say a big thank you for yesterday, your warmth and professionalism really showed, and so many people commented on this. I think mum would have been proud – as a team we got the Eulogy just right. So thank you again and take care.

Kind regards,

Lisa and Family

Hi Tracey,

I just wanted to drop you a short note to thank you for delivering a truly exceptional service earlier in the week for my Mum, Carol Abbott. Your words and presentation captured her completely and I know that like myself, everyone there found it a real comfort.

It has also been really helpful to have all of the words captured in a single document which we have made available to those who could not attend. Thanks you for doing that.

We particularly liked your phrase about being kind to yourselves in your grief. I think that was particularly helpful.

Very best wishes and thank you again.

Gary

Thank you so much for making Mums funeral a very positive experience for all our friends and family.  Everyone commented on what an excellent job you did and I wanted you to know that.

The ceremony was so fitting for Mum and I can’t thank you enough for your massive input.
You were so helpful from the start and made the job of creating the service for us as a family in a very sensitive way.

Best wishes.
