Creating the funeral ceremony
I visit you to talk about your loved one's background, family, friends, work, hobbies, personality, beliefs and funny or touching memories. I help you choose music, poems, readings, (prayers and hymns if you are having any) and send the Order of Service to your funeral director. I lead the funeral and act as Master of Ceremonies at memorials.
You can choose the music you like - classical, rock, pop spiritual or religious. I will find and play back for you almost any music or hymn, even if you can only remember a snippet. I have led services with singers, Scottish pipers and ukulele orchestras.
I help choose poetry for different characters, hobbies, occupations and relationships.
Prayers & Hymns
People often want a hymn or a prayer because they learnt it at school and everyone can join in. I'll bring some suggestions with me when we meet.
Songs and Music
I write a tribute:
a 'eulogy' and check you are happy with it. I speak for you on the day and help family or friends who wish to speak, read a tribute or a poem.
