What is a Funeral Celebrant?

Funeral celebrants lead funeral services by planning and overseeing semi-religious, non-religious and religious services.


Bernie's aim for the funeral service is for it to be a ‘Service of Remembrance as well as a Celebration of Life’ that honours your loved one's memory.

His approach places greater emphasis on how your loved one lived their life, their personality traits and the memories you have of them.

Celebrants are the preferred option for those wishing to see a vivid reflection of their loved one's life story in the service.

An alternative to a Vicar or Priest

Bernie conducts religious, semi-religious and non-religious funerals.

His aim is to fully accommodate your wishes.

He can advise you on poems, songs and readings you might wish to use.

In a service led by Bernie there is more time dedicated to talking about your loved one, their life, their personality and the sharing of memories.

Bernie will speak to you before the funeral, visiting you at your home, where you can talk at length about your loved one, thus helping him to create a fitting 'Life Story'.

The funeral is very personal in these instances as it directly reflects what your loved one would have wanted.
