During a time of loss you may feel overwhelmed with emotions and confusion about where to begin organising a funeral.
Organising a funeral can be so daunting, but there is no need to feel overwhelmed. I’m here to guide and help you navigate this significant and challenging life event.
My part is to perform a heartfelt and personal ceremony in honour of your departed family member or friend.
Every person is unique, as is the way they chose to live their life. In turn, it is important to take heed of the way in which they would want to say goodbye. A funeral ceremony is a personal choice – you may want a fuss-free and simple ceremony because that’s what your loved one would have wanted or, if they haven’t left any instructions, it is up to you to choose the most appropriate ceremony to honour their memory.
Initially, I will need to know which Funeral Director you have chosen to organise the legal logistics of the funeral, coffin etc. You can take as much time as you need to think and consider your options. Making the right decisions now will help to give you absolute peace of mind in the years ahead.
The deceased may have expressed their desires or made their own arrangements and pre-purchased their funeral plan and resting place, be it a burial or cremation. If this is the case there will be a clear plan to follow, allowing you to concentrate on what you need to do in the short term.
If arrangements have not been made, I can certainly help guide you through your options. Let your love for the deceased and your knowledge of their life guide your decisions as this will ensure a truly memorable final farewell.
If you are experiencing severe grief, your chosen funeral service would be more than happy to provide you with bereavement support.
It is my job, and indeed my pleasure, to support you and to work with you to create a unique and personal ceremony as you, your family and friends remember your loved one.
