funeral ceremonies

A very important type of ceremony that I am proud to offer is a funeral ceremony.

These are all totally individual and every word that is said, every reading, every piece of music is chosen by, or in any case approved by, the people concerned. In this case I would come to see you normally at your house to find about your loved one and discuss what sort of readings and music you would like. If family members or friends wish to speak at the ceremony we would discuss that too.

The ceremony is not a church service but can be non religious or semi-religious. A prayer or hymn can be included for example as you wish. I would then write this up and, if possible by email, consult you until you are happy with everything. A funeral of this kind is often held at a crematorium but can equally be a burial in a municipal cemetery or be a woodland ceremony. Normally the funeral director will deal with the practicalities, including charges, and may have suggested a civil celebrant to you if you do not have, or wish to use, a priest or minister. If not, please tell the funeral director that you wish a civil celebrant to conduct the ceremony and give him or her my details if that is appropriate

I am based near Marlborough and am willing to travel in Wiltshire, Berkshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire.
