What Independent Celebrants Do

Effectively, we do the job of a vicar, priest or humanist – but we are independent of any constraints of belief systems or dogma.

This means we are free to create a unique service entirely to your wishes, containing as much or as little religious reference as you likeā€¦or none at all. After all, everyone has their own ideas about life, spirituality and death and not everyone wants a traditional religious funeral.

Independent celebrants work closely with the bereaved to find just the right words and tone to reflect the personality of the lost loved one.

Sensitivity is key. A dignified funeral can also be uplifting, satisfying and smiling.

It can have a positive, healing influence at a time of profound sadness.
