When I made the decision to become an independent funeral celebrant in 2014, I undertook training with the Fellowship of Independent Celebrants, a professional and fully accredited organization.
Since then, I have been privileged to officiate at well over a thousand funeral services, witnessing many different situations where a person’s life has come to an end.
Before becoming a celebrant, I worked in the music industry for over twenty years, including five years working at the Royal Opera House, and have a broad knowledge of many genres of music. As well as my passion for music, I also love watching and talking about sport, particularly cricket, rugby and F1, and I am an enthusiastic amateur cricketer.
Finally defeated by London traffic, I travel everywhere on my 750cc Honda motorbike, and have had plenty of opportunity to observe the slight surprise when your celebrant arrives carrying a motorcycle helmet!
I am at your service to plan a funeral ceremony which is totally reflective of your own lifestyle and choices. And being situated in one of the UK’s most culturally diverse areas I have been privileged to create services which cover a wide range of beliefs and backgrounds.
Within the last eighteen months, I have lost both my mother and my brother, which has given me an even deeper empathy for those who have suffered bereavement. I hear you, I join you, and I support you.
