In today’s more secular society fewer people find themselves associated to a particular church, yet many still hold on to either some form of spiritual or religious belief, but when it comes to organising a funeral quite often only a religious or more atheist style humanist service is offered when neither is truly appropriate.
As a Professional Independent Celebrant I can tailor a funeral to respect those of all faiths and those with none. Some funerals I conduct may be totally non-religious, where others may include prayers, hymns, meditation or other ceremonial ideas to personally reflect individual beliefs or philosophies
The most important part of the service is that each is created individually and personalised for the person who has died. I spend a lot of time with bereaved families prior to the funeral to learn as much as possible about their loved ones. I actively encourage all those who wish to take part in the service to do so by way of spoken, written or musical tribute or alternatively families may like to participate simply by choosing appropriate music, readings of poems.
A good and well-presented personalised funeral service makes an enormous difference to how positively people experience a funeral, I want to help you get it right, and to support you to celebrate the uniqueness of someone’s individual journey through life.
This service is available in Chesterfield and the surrounding area.
