Civil Funeral Celebrant, Bournemouth

“Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing”

Funeral & Memorial Services

As a civil funeral celebrant and Interfaith Minister I can support you and your family through the death of a loved one. Death is part of life and the loss of a loved one can trigger deep feelings. It is a very painful shock even if it was expected.

The Process

As your minister I will meet with you first to offer support and hear about the one who has died. In partnership and alongside your chosen funeral director and with as much or little involvement as you are able to contribute, with reverence, I will create a ceremony that truly reflects the essence of your beloved, the person they were and will always be in your heart.

Together and with family if you like we can choose music, readings and other specific special things or you can just leave things to me.

Of course we cannot say what happens to a person when they die, no one truly knows. Whatever one personally believes, in my experience whilst the physical body leaves this world the love we share for one another does not die.

I am a grounded presence of sacred love and compassion, leading and holding the service for you, family and friends, to express their grief and reflect upon their own relationship with the one who has died. Celebrating their life, their unique gifts, however long they lived.

“Thank you for leading the funeral ceremony so beautifully today, it was meaningful and inspirational for us all and a fitting tribute..”

An Interfaith funeral or memorial ceremony at a crematorium or natural burial costs from £120.00 to £300.00 dependent on your requirements and is paid via the funeral directors. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this further and or pass my details to your funeral director and we will take it from there.

Follow on bereavement support is also available if in time you have questions that you want to speak to someone about see Spiritual Counselling and Support.
