If you would like an officiant to lead the funeral ceremony, we can recommend experienced funeral celebrants (civil or humanist) or a minister. The chosen celebrant will liaise directly with the family to create a personalised commemoration of your loved one. Readings by family members are welcome.
Selecting the right celebrant
Our approach when we meet a family is to find out as much as we gently can about the person who has died and what is important to the family about the funeral they would like.
We personally feel that matching a family with a celebrant whose personality style we know they will get on with is key; this approach lets us work things out, and build the all important relationship with the family.
We then like to collaboratively with a celebrant, keeping each other informed to ensure the family have the funeral they want.
