I meet with each family personally to sensitively discuss all aspects of the ceremony, such as music, readings, poems and rituals. I then write a full service and send it to the family to approve before the day of the funeral.
I take pride in making sure that each and every one of my funeral ceremonies is tailored to reflect the wishes of my families and closely represents the life of their loved one. Each ceremony is written to reflect the life they lived and your time with them.
Funeral ceremonies can be held wherever you choose. It could be in a favourite place, somewhere that is meaningful to you or you can choose to have a ceremony in a crematorium, cemetery chapel or graveside. We will discuss your options at our meeting.
I need you to know some of the things that have been said to me since Friday... All thought the service was beautiful, perfectly pitched and they were gobsmacked to find out that we had never met you before last week. My boss added that it's the first non-religious service he had ever attended and he said it was amazing and uplifting and a celebration of life. You truly made the hardest day I've had so far, a joyful experience, (some added that they thought I was on some sort of medication, purely because I actually appeared to be enjoying myself!) The envelope Dad received from you afterwards absolutely made his day, the poem is already in a frame on the wall, perfect touch....Never stop doing what you do so well!
Thank you so much, from myself, Pam and all the family for conducting our service yesterday. It was done with compassion,kindness and understanding and was just how we had hoped it would be. We are very grateful to you for your professionalism in helping to organise the service, and in guiding us in the best way for it all to flow so smoothly. It would have been a difficult task for us to have had to do on our own.
I was absolutely dreading Tuesday. I truly do not think the day would have been as lovely as it was if it were not for you taking the service. You were absolutely wonderful, perfect in every way - a comfort blanket for us all for sure. It was almost as though you were part of the family and knew my Mum. I could not have wished for a kinder, more sensitive person to have taken the service JUST PERFECT IN EVERY WAY - and angel sent from heaven (or Mum ha ha)
