Funerals

It’s so important to say goodbye to your loved one in a way that’s right for you, your family and friends. And in a way that they would’ve loved.

If you have recently lost a loved one, this can be a really difficult time. There are so many decisions to make and things to think about. Grief affects people in many different ways. You need the space to grieve in the way that is right for you. I consider it an honour to be present with a family during such a difficult time. During my visit we will talk through the kind of service you would like. We can work together and if you would like to take part in the service, say a few words, sing, play or read, you would be very welcome. Equally if you feel you cannot speak or participate in the service, then I am here to support you.

Music, readings and the whole service can be personalised to the one we are saying goodbye to. For some people this may mean including hymns to sing and biblical or religious passages to read. Other people may wish to include elements from other religious or spiritual traditions such as Buddhist, Native American Indian or Maori. For others, they may wish to have no religious element; they may wish it to center around family values and a celebration of their loved one’s life.

We work together to design the ceremony that’s right for you.

Being Brighton based, I know that many people in this area want funerals that are different and unique. Think freely! You are no longer restrained by tradition if that is not for you. From hymns to heavy metal, from pink hearses to motorbike side-car hearses, from traditional oak coffins to green wicker coffins, from crematorium to woodland or even sea burials; there are many options.

I regularly work with several open-minded, caring funeral directors and if you would like me to, can recommend someone to meet your needs.

Pricing: £195 for local funerals
