Funeral and Memorial services
'I have just read the words and must admit I had a few tears in my eyes although some were from having a chuckle. You have captured my Father in every word'
(extract from a recent thank you email received - as always it was a pleasure to help - laughter and tears are close partners)
I treat each funeral as something unique - creating an environment that welcomes tears, smiles, laughter and quiet reflection. All or no faiths embraced - no rules - every person is unique.

If you would like me to help prepare and deliver a funeral then either contact me directly or through your chosen funeral directors. I come and see you at your home or a suitable location - or sometimes by phone/Skype/email. I place a lot of emphasis on the family contact prior to the day. It is all about listening to your wishes so that the right words and content are prepared. I will offer suggestions, help you understand the structure of a service - but there are NO rules! I can help you with music choices, poems etc. and I will either write the words to celebrate the life (often called THE EULOGY)- or I will advice you on timings if you wish to make your own tributes. I prepare a draft copy of the Eulogy in time to make amendments. I meet you at the chapel or crematorium or burial ground at least 15 minutes in advance of the service.
'Thank you for your wonderful words for my Mum'
