Losing a loved one is a time of enormous personal challenge and being there to help plan and conduct this final act of respect for your loved one is a great privilege. 

A funeral is a time to honour, remember and celebrate their life, as well as to mourn their passing.

I work with you to create a service which both reflects the beliefs and wishes of your loved one – as well as allowing you to focus on your loss and find comfort in the memories.

And in my role as a Funeral Celebrant, I am able to conduct a range of different ceremonies tailored to your individual wishes, such as:

  • Part religious or non-religious (including elements such as hymns and prayers)
  • Spiritual
  • Holistic
  • Green Funerals
  • Natural Burials
  • Ceremonies combining the beliefs of your loved one

I will lead you through the service on the day with loving commitment to your needs and the promise of comfort through this final act of communal respect.

Whether you want to speak on the phone or send a short message, you can contact me here.


Testimonials

Thank you for conducting the service for my father with such skill. Your words struck just the right note…you held our hands throughout the whole process.
We were very pleased with how the funeral went on Thursday. This was due largely to all the communicating that went beforehand. Your introduction, especially, was so well worded that it rang completely true. Your very competent, friendly, un-officious presence, and presentation were very much appreciated
Thank you Annie-Lou. It was very moving and sensitive, and the way you led us through was delightful.
My mother would have so appreciated her funeral! I have had such a lovely message from friends… thank you so much for doing such an amazing job. Your words were perfect.
Thank you very much for conducting the service so sensitively for us yesterday – just the right touch on a very sad family day
Mum said the service was beautiful and you got him just right.

FAQs

Why Choose an Independent Celebrant?

Independent Celebrants are also requested and recommended by Funeral Directors to conduct funerals where the deceased has left specific wishes for a non-religious service. Funerals may take place at a crematorium, or outdoors at ‘green’ funeral sites.  

How much does it cost?

 As an Independent Celebrant, I will charge a one-off, all-inclusive fee, based on the size and scale of your ceremony – this is most usually arranged through the Funeral Director who is co-ordinating the arrangements.  

Once agreed, I will give you as much time and expertise with planning this unique event as you need, to help you shape the ceremony to your own personal requirements.  Contact me here.
