Scattering of Ashes



Once you have your loved ones ashes back again, Seed balls are a fantastic accompaniment to a scattering ceremony, they can be cast with ashes marking the spot with a living beautiful memorial.

Earth Vessels for Ashes



Earth Vessels are unique handmade urns which hold the ashes of departed loved ones. They are called “Earth Vessels” to reflect the holding of our earthly body and our return to nature when we die. The act of deeply remembering someone and thinking about the colours, materials, landscapes they would have loved in order to create a custom made urn can be very healing to grief. Poems, photographs and dedications can be used too. Find Beth’s website here:

Funerals around the World – New Orleans



The New Orleans jazz funeral. The boisterous, jazz-tinged funeral procession is one of the well known images of New Orleans, Louisiana.  Fusing West African, French and African-American traditions, funerals in New Orleans strike a wonderful balance between joy and grief as mourners are lead by a marching band. The band plays sorrowful music at first, but once the body is buried, they shift to an upbeat note. Dancing is generally a part of the event, to commemorate the life of the deceased. Design your own funeral, your way.  Contact Sarah on 07870763304 for more information about Funeral Wishes.

Funeral Wishes



Planning your own funeral or memorial ceremony can provide peace-of-mind to you and your family. By planning your ceremony in advance you can design and specify the exact type of ceremony you’d like, so that your friends and family celebrate you as you wish.  By letting your family know how you’d like your funeral or memorial ceremony to be, they’ll have clarity about your final wishes during a difficult emotional time.  The more time spent planning a funeral, the more memorable the occasion will be. Share your views and advice…everyone’s funeral should be as special as their lives.

I will guide you through the whole process and then create a Funeral Wishes document for you to give to your Next of Kin.  This can include letters, photographs, poems, Memory Stick etc. to personalise your Funeral Wishes

Living Ceremonies



When someone is born we celebrate their entrance into our world and our lives.  We feast and celebrate when a child is born.  We celebrate each year that passes with birthday parties, marking the annual ceremony of when someone’s life began.  Why should the end of life be any different, why focus on the negative aspect of a person leaving us when we should look back and celebrate all that they have accomplished?

Living Celebrations are becoming popular, often organised by hospices to increase the quality of life for the dying patient and to give support to the family.

They are also being organised by individuals who want to be present, and indeed to be the centre of attention, at the last celebration of their lives.  

They want to enjoy their own funeral and the opportunity it gives them to see for the last time their friends, relatives, former colleagues, neighbours, team mates and those whose lives have touched theirs.

It is a time to honour and appreciate the living.  Contact me on 07870763304 for more information.
