Funeral Celebrants

To view the celebrants we work with, please find a list below, or click on your area of the map.

If the person who has died was not particularly religious, you may feel it more appropriate to use a funeral celebrant to lead the service rather than a faith leader. Celebrants are people who have undertaken training which qualifies them to officiate at a funeral. Their role is to assist the family in developing a funeral service which reflects and celebrates the unique qualities of the individual. The initial step is to have a conversation with the celebrant, either in person, or possibly by video call or phone call. At this stage, the celebrant will try to gather as much information as possible about the deceased in order that they can establish the type of service most suited to the family and their loved one. It is helpful at this point if people feel able to share their memories of the deceased so that the celebrant can identify their unique characteristics and ensure that these can be included in the service. Many people find the celebrant particularly helpful when it comes to writing the eulogy (a speech, read out at the funeral, which tells the mourners about the deceased, their family and their main qualities and interests) which can be a challenging task to undertake when you are still trying to process the death. This is also the best time to consider any music or readings to include as part of the service. If you find it difficult to think of any suitable options, your celebrant will be able to suggest some ideas. Once the key aspects of the service have been decided, it is then necessary to create an order of service for the funeral. These can, if you wish, be printed for the mourners; some people like to have a photograph of the deceased on the cover. Although these can be created and printed professionally (either by the funeral director or by a professional printing company), it is possible to create these at home if you have a computer and printer. Celebrants have a great deal of experience in how to ensure that every aspect of the funeral is carried out in a sensitive and dignified way, thus easing the burden on loved ones. Their fees range according to the services they offer and the location.
