What is a Living Funeral?
A Living Funeral is a wonderful chance for you to say goodbye to all of your most favourite people, in exactly the way you want it done. It’s your own funeral that you get to attend whilst you are still alive.
It would be my greatest honour to help you create something special; whether that’s a party, an intimate gathering, a touching ceremony complete with tributes and a eulogy or it could be one last big hurrah in your honour.
I have oodles of ideas that we can go through together to make your Living Funeral perfect for you. If this sounds like your cup of tea please get in touch as I would love to hear from you.

There is no right or wrong way to organise a Living Funeral. Ideally the person dying would be well enough to give their suggestions and be able to contribute to the celebration with their ideas and wishes, however if time is running out and this is not possible, the planning can be arranged with the dying person’s family and close friends.
As your Celebrant I will personally get in touch with you to help bring together a ceremony that ticks all the boxes. I can do everything from sending out the invitations, to writing the eulogy, to buying the jam for the scones you want to eat! We will sit down together and work out what you would love to do and how we can make it happen.
Once it’s all over and you’ve had the most wonderful send off possible, I give you a great big hug and say my good byes too!
You don’t need to then have a second (more traditional) funeral once you’ve passed away, however you most certainly can if this is what you want.

I charge $65 an hour and invoice you (or your family) once the Living Funeral has happened.
