Leading funerals & memorials
Having retired after 30 years as a police officer, I've experienced the impact on families of death and loss. I also gained knowledge of ceremonial occasions and public speaking skills.
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 choice.
As a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants (FPC) I work to their code of conduct and high standards. I have been helping families since 2018 and my story is on the website
Away from work
I volunteer as a caseworker for SSAFA (the armed forces charity) to help veterans and their dependents in need.
I have been involved with animal welfare, my whole life. I've worked at rescue centres and have re-homed 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.
When I visit you, using Spotify (with 30m songs), we're sure to find your special choices.
