Becoming a funeral celebrant
Having retired after 30 years as a police officer I've dealt with the impact on families of death and loss.
When someone close to me died the funeral celebrant asked me to read a treasured poem, sowing the seeds of becoming a funeral celebrant myself.
I am an independent funeral celebrant because I am not a humanist or a member of any faith group so I can create a ceremony that fits your beliefs and values.
I am a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants (FPC), working to their code of conduct and high standards.
You can see my story on the FPC website
Away from work
I volunteer as a caseworker for SSAFA (the armed forces charity) and am inspired by people's life stories.
I have always been concerned with animal welfare, was a volunteer at Monkey World for 3 years and rehoming many cats and dogs over the years.
As a guitarist, my love of music helps with creativity, music conveys emotions that words often cannot. I help you find your special music. During my visit to you, using Spotify (with 30 million songs) we should find your choice!
