Funerals

This can be a very difficult and emotional time for you.  I understand this, so provide a sympathetic and caring service, giving you a personal ceremony filled with meaning and love.  Using a celebrant allows to have a service written especially for you, which can include religion*, poetry, prose or music suited to your taste and wishes.

*a Humanist will not include any religious wording or symbolism

 

The charge for my services starts at £250

This includes:

  • A 2-hour face to face meeting with you (or via the internet or telephone during Covid if you prefer)

  • Delivering the service

  • I will work with you to create a unique service for you and your family, the final approval of the service is yours

  • I can guide you on appropriate readings and prose if required

  • We will have contact after our initial meeting via phone, email, or the internet (Zoom, Skype, etc.)

  • Edits of the script are included in the price

  • I will give you an individual presentation of your service, with space for cards and mementos

  • I can provide music for outside services

  • If you have any special requests, my style of dress can reflect the occasion

  • Prayers can be included in the service (a Humanist will not be able to do this)

  • Location within a 30-mile radius of Hertfordshire*

Optional services of a professional photographer can be arranged if required (price not included in the £250).  This is proving popular at the moment for people who are unable to attend the service. Images are supplied on a USB flash drive and can be viewed privately by a password protected link online.  I also offer a hardback 'coffee table' style book personally created for you to remember the event.  Price on application.

*Travel/accommodation expenses may be added depending on location

Please note, a 50% deposit is required at the first meeting (unless payment is via the Funeral Director)
