Independent Funeral Celebrant

My name is Betheny & I am a qualified Independent Funeral Celebrant. 

I have been working in the care sector for over 5 years. I have been faced with some of the most challenging situations, but also the most rewarding. With my career having very similar traits to being a celebrant it comes naturally to me.
I put my heart into what I do and its something I am very passionate about.
I feel that everyone should be given the opportunity of the best send-off. 

I work closely with the funeral arrangers & loved ones. This enables me to learn about their character, the key people, and the events that made their lives.

I am not linked with any Religious or Humanist organisation. Which leaves me completely flexible.

No Longer By My Side But Forever In My Heart

The Process

HOW CAN I GET IN TOUCH?

 

I shall be passed your details from your funeral arranger, or you can contact me directly through the website. 

LET'S MEET

 

I shall arrange a meeting with you so we are able to discuss further arrangements. For me to learn about their character, the key people, and events that made their lives, and tell me any special memories you have of them.
Each life leaves behind a space filled with emotions, and this is what we will explore.

THE FINER DETAIL

 

With everything we have discussed, I shall then write a bespoke service. I will always send a copy of the first draft eulogy or tribute for you to read. This gives you the opportunity to come back with any amendments you feel are necessary if any.

At this stage, I shall also gather any additional information that I need readings, poem or tributes so I can add this onto the order of service.

THE DAY 

On the day I shall deliver the service exactly how we discussed. 
I shall also provide you with a copy of the eulogy for you to cherish. 

THE SERVICE IN FULL DETAIL

 

We shall discuss everything in the service.
We shall discuss any music or hymns you wish to be played during the service.

If you or anyone wishes to read a few words or say a poem.
I will always ask for a copy of the poems, readings, and tributes. This is so that I can make sure that the whole funeral service flows perfectly, also allowing the details to be correct for the Order of Service. 


I don't expect these details to be at hand or for you to know right away, but we can finalise the finer details later on.
