Living Funerals

I also am passionate about living funerals. A living funeral is a ceremony that is held for a person who is still alive but knows that they are approaching the end of their life.


It is a way of celebrating the person’s life and achievements with them there, so they can have a wonderful time,  hear and witness their close friends and family expressing their heartfelt gratitude and love, whilst they are alive and able to enjoy these precious moments.

Please contact me if you are interested in this.  I would love to help you and create your perfect living funeral.

I will be guided by you as to the way in which you wish me to help you. I can also suggest ideas to make your Living Funeral just what you want it  to be.

What happens next?

We will meet face to face or online, depending on your preference.

To stimulate your ideas, I will share some questions with you.

Based on what you tell me about your stories, memories, information, and preferred style, I will design a ceremony that meets your wishes, which we can then review together

I'm happy to help with other aspects of your planning , and to bounce ideas around. Do get in touch for a complimentary call.
