Kate is an independent funeral celebrant who will help you to create a unique and fitting ceremony for your loved one. The ceremony can include Humanist, Buddhist, Christian or elements from other spiritual traditions. Kate will always come to your home and spend as much time with you as needed. She will talk with you and your family about your loved one and what mattered to them. She will then create an individual unique service that celebrates your loved one's life and values.


Many people today regard themselves as ‘non-religious’ and do not regularly attend a church or other place of worship. However when it comes to the funeral or memorial service, the bereaved family may wish for a favourite hymn, a prayer or spiritual reading to be included. Kate will ask you what beliefs your loved one held and she will acknowledge and include those beliefs in the service. Many people would like a prayer or blessing to help send their loved one ‘on their way’. Kate can help you with choices of music, readings and the overall structure of the service.


She has over 12 years of experience conducting Cremation, Burial and Woodland Burial services.


If you wish to have an Order of Service created, Kate will write the text and send it to the Funeral Director to get it printed. She will show you copies of different kinds of Order of Service to help you choose your own design or template. If you are designing and printing your own Order of Service she will write the text and give any help to create this; including designs to stimulate your own creativity and what would be most appropriate for your loved one. Please note that an Order of Service is not essential for the ceremony.


Kate officiated at my Father's Funeral this year and her support was invaluable. Before, during and after. Kate asks great questions and helped me and my sister create a unique and deeply personal service. Her presence on the day was grounded and peaceful. Her voice incredibly soothing. I got exactly what I needed and she made a profound impact on the rest of the mourners. Bespoke funerals are the way to truly complete this rite of passage and Kate's wisdom and guidance was invaluable.
