What will I do?

  • I will meet with you and other family or friends; those most closely connected with the person who has died to learn more about that person and ensure that the funeral truly captures their life and personality
  • I will advise on practical matters, such as options for the committal or the amount of time available for the ceremony at the crematorium
  • I will listen to your ideas on music or readings and provide my own suggestions if needed
  • I will share my ideas and draw on my experience when appropriate
  • I will liaise with those involved in the ceremony, for example, anyone who will be reading a tribute or a poem / piece of prose
  • I will write a unique ceremony that’s absolutely fitting for the person who has died and the circumstances – you will see this script as soon as possible and we can hone it until you are completely happy
  • I will be a calm presence on the day, and will lead the ceremony with warmth and dignity
  • I will give you a presentation copy of the final script to keep forever
