Leading funeral & memorial services
Having retired after 30 years as a police officer I've experienced the impact on families of death and loss. I also gained experience of ceremonial occasions and skills in public speaking.
When someone close to me died the funeral celebrant asked me to read a treasured poem, sowing the seeds of becoming a funeral and memorial celebrant myself.
I am not a humanist nor a member of any faith group. I am independent and create a ceremony that fits your beliefs and values so some religion or none is your decision.
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).
I have been involved with animal welfare, my whole life (volunteering at Monkey World for 3 years) and have rehomed many cats and dogs over the years.
As a musician I love the creativity of helping you to find the right music to convey the emotions you need to express.
