It's my life's work to express those emotions and feelings that can only be conveyed through music. It's how my spirit takes wing and soars to unfathomable, seemingly unreachable heights. I hope that my music does the same for your spirit, too.

What is a Civil Funeral?

A funeral that is driven by the wishes, beliefs and values of the deceased and their family,  and not by the beliefs or ideology of the person conducting the funeral.        The Institute of Civil Funerals.


An alternative.

More people than at any other time, are now looking at alternative ceremonies to mark the end of an individual's life. Whilst the majority of people in the UK still choose a 'traditional' religious funeral service, an increasing number are finding that their personal preferences are best accommodated within  a civil funeral ceremony. A funeral which can include religious elements of  whatever faith or no religious content at all, and also other elements that can be combined to better reflect the wishes of those involved.


As a professionally trained Funeral Celebrant, I will help you to create a truly personal funeral ceremony that is exactly what you want it to be. I will meet with you to discuss the content of the ceremony fully. You will be able to check all that is written for the ceremony beforehand, and I will offer you a copy of those words to keep afterwards. The ceremony will capture the very essence of the person, and tell the story of the unique life that has been lived.
