The Celebrant Accord



I have been a Celebrant since 2012 and I am so pleased to be able to adopt The Funeral Celebrant Accord so that all my families know that I always offer the best service.

The Funeral Celebrant Accord

The Funeral Celebrant Accord defines the attributes and skills required of an excellent funeral celebrant and is intended to set the standards by which all celebrants offering funeral services should be measured.

The role of a funeral celebrant is to serve the bereaved and their community by creating and leading a personal, accurate and respectful funeral ceremony.

Their work should clearly reflect the life, values and beliefs of the person who has died, acknowledge and give time to their community of family and friends, and create an environment in which the grieving process can be held and supported.

An excellent funeral celebrant:

1. Is professional

2. Cares for their clients

3. Is calm and shows natural leadership

4. Writes personalised ceremonies

5. Cares about their self-development

Celebrating a Life Well Lived



I always  go to the family’s home so that we can share a cup of tea, they can explain the photo on the mantlepiece and have an ordinary conversation about planning this extraordinary occasion.  It is always lovely to receive feedback from a ceremony and confirm I have done a good job!  We listened to his favourite composer, George Gershwin, playing I Got Rhythm as he definitely had lots of rhythm!

Just wanted to thank you so much for creating such a beautiful service for my Uncle.

I really appreciate your approach to funeral services namely “celebrating” someone’s life as opposed to commiserating their loss, this results in a lighter feeling service which is much more positively focused.

I thought you were wonderful!!

500 FUNERALS IN 5 YEARS



I have been privileged to meet 500 families over the last 5 years and been able to help them tell their loved ones stories.  Some were surprising, especially to the friends and family, some were sad, some were a celebration but all of them moved me in so many ways.

Thank you for asking me to be a part of the Celebration of their lives.
