Independent Life Celebrant For Funerals in Cumbria  


The Celebration 

I am here to sensitivity help grieving families prepare an end of life service that truly reflects the character of the person who has passed away, pays an honourable tribute, and allows those left behind to say a fond farewell.


A real celebration of life, tailored precisely in accordance with your wishes. The celebration can include some favourite hymns and prayers.  Alternatively it may not be religious at all, and consist of readings, poetry, music, and reminiscences.  It is so important to remember the person, celebrate their life here, and also to acknowledge that they have gone, and allow moments of grieving, sadness and reflection.


Whatever choices you make, the aim is that you leave the service feeling at peace, sure that the person you valued has been well served.


My focus is entirely on the celebration of life service, the funeral director will deal with all the other arrangements, or you can make these yourself if you prefer.


I can also help you plan a Celebration of your own life should you wish to have this ready to guide your own family and friends when the time comes.



Contacting me

 I am based in Grange-over-Sands, in the South Lakes, and serve surrounding areas. Your celebration of life service can take place at a crematorium chapel, in a woodland, at the village hall, or wherever you wish.


You can book me through your funeral director, or ring for a chat on

07753 356244 or email 


My fee will be arranged at the time of booking.



What happens next

 Once booked, I will come and meet you and your family, preferably in your home, but wherever is mutually convenient, and we will spend an hour or so discussing the person whose life is being celebrated, and how they can best be remembered.


I can suggest music and readings, and you may say whether any friends and family would like to speak, read, play a musical instrument or perhaps sing.  I shall then go off to prepare a script, and send it to you for approval, so we can agree any alterations and corrections.


On the day itself I will welcome everyone and lead the service.  Afterwards If you wish you may have a presentation copy of the script as a keepsake.
