A lovingly crafted ceremony to help you recall and celebrate memories of time spent with your loved one.
Finding the right words to honour a friend or relative who has recently died can be so hard. At a time when you have suddenly lost an important person in your life, there is nothing anyone can do or say to take the pain away. For families experiencing such loss, planning the funeral can feel like a momentous challenge, and just one more trial to get through.
If you would like me to help you to plan, write and deliver a life celebration ceremony for your loved one, then it would be my honour and privilege to work with you, and to help ease that process for you.
I will take the time to get to know you, to find out everything that I can about the loved one you are grieving for, and to help you create a ceremony that you feel proud of and that truly does your loved one justice. I can help you create a ceremony that entirely reflects their personality, the life they lead, the choices they made and the challenges they faced, the joys they experienced and that celebrates all the important elements that made them who they were.
The ceremony for your loved one would be exactly as you wish it to be. An Agnostic Scotland ceremony is one that is inclusive and open-minded. It is possible to entirely reflect in your loved ones ceremony their own unique blend of beliefs and values. All words, music, symbolic elements and rituals are entirely your choice.
I do my very best to ensure that the ceremony we create gives you the opportunity to say everything you wish to say and do everything you wish to do in order to truly pay tribute to and honour your loved one.
As per the Agnostic Scotland recommended Funeral and Life Celebration Fees, I charge £200 for a funeral and £250 for an extended funeral. I do not charge for my time for funerals of individuals under 16 years of age. At Agnostic Scotland, we have a Community Fund in order to ensure that all families have access to affordable ceremonies. If you feel you need support in paying for your loved one’s ceremony, please let me know.
Please note that I am limited in the number of funerals I can conduct due to my other work commitments. However, if I am unable to help you then I will be put you in touch with one of my wonderful colleagues.
Please do get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
