I am so sorry for your loss.

I can help you to give your loved one the funeral service or celebration of life which celebrates who they were and tells their story.


Just because someone has died it does not mean that they have changed. Their life in all its colour deserves to be told as you wish it to be.


Let me help you to make your loved one's funeral relevant to their life and filled with small details about them which you loved (or which infuriated you, but you miss like mad


I am a member of Humanists UK, and am an Independent Celebrant, trained to create the perfect funeral service for you.

Contact me directly or via your funeral director.

My fee is £200 - £220 for the entire service and presentation scrolls.

Memorial services also available.

"Everybody came back from X's funeral saying what a fantastic service you gave.

They couldn't sing your praises enough!"

"Thank you so much for making it so special.

X would have been so proud.

I truly thank you with all my heart. " M.H.

Each of my scrolls contains the words of the entire service in an attractive script and watermarked with a relevant picture.

You can hold a funeral or celebration of life separately to the burial or committal . I also love conducting memorial services and ash committals. These are free to families I have conducted a service for.

Listen. There is this silence now. This stillness.

Gradually we will get used to it. But, for now,

It is strange.

You have left such a gap.

Our world is in shock, holding its breath.

But listen closer – all your laughter, all your love

Is still ringing out. Still holding us. All our memories of you are still with us.

All the love we shared is still in every one of us.

And although we ache from the loss of you,

You will always be here – as still and steady,

And fierce, as any star. Look. You are shining

Bright through all our skies.

Thank you

For being here with us.

"You were the celebrant at a lovely funeral I went to on Thursday last week and I’ve told several people how good you were! "

"Thank you again for your wonderful input Kate, so good to have your support and it’s a relief to know you will be there to guide us all through on the saddest day of our lives."DG

The way you go above and beyond for each family in your care still amazes me! - D. Funeral Director
