What people say about funeral celebrants

"The celebrant took time to explain the whole ceremony and what happens afterwards - this was my first funeral and the guidance and support was very much appreciated." (Mr S - 2012)

"The day was celebrated in the most caring of ways. Not only did the celebrant get to know my mother, the care she took in understanding us as family was comforting. I can only thank her for making the experience as comforting as is possible. It was good to feel secure knowing we were in good hands. Mum would have loved it." (Mrs F 2012)

"Having a civil funeral was what Dad would have wanted and we are sure he would have been very pleased at the service. We appreciated the way our celebrant helped us to recall stories and put these into words. Many friends and family commented on how well the service went, and in particular how Dad's life and his ways were brought to life for them. Thank you for making a difficult time much a lot easier." ( Mrs A - 2012)

"The service was carried out with great sensitivity and kindness. Nothing was overlooked. Many who attended said it was a lovely tribute to mother and one person expressed a wish that it was the kind of ceremony they would like themselves." ( Mr H -2012)

"The celebrant was a huge help and support to me and my family at a very sad time. She took the time and trouble to speak to those who knew our aunt the best in order to paint a true picture and put together a truly memorable and personal tribute reflecting the life of a wonderful lady." (Mrs W - 2013)

"The celebrant's help in preparing for and running my step-mother's funeral was invaluable in making sure it went extremely smoothly. Her support, both practical and emotional, her knowledge of what needed to be done and her attention to detail made what could have been a difficult time far less so. Her sensitivity and awareness of how much small things matter brought a real sense of calm, giving me and everyone else involved the space to say goodbye to my step-mother." (Mr S - 2013)
