Ashley George, loving my amazing position as a Family Funeral Celebrant. Experience as an Officiant, with expertise in chaplaincy to event management and retail has provided me with personal skills and knowledge combined with study for the supportive role of assisting families to create a unique funeral service that goes beyond traditional.
Practicality’s of selecting a Funeral Celebrant
A loved one has just died, your world has been turned upside down, there is a funeral to organise. Question, where do I start, help ? I’ve never done this before. Did they leave a funeral plan? What are their wishes?
The feeling is overwhelming, it’s becoming stressful. Breath and think logically.
Who do I want to conduct the service ? Checking into Google, you search for inspiration, several business pages reveal themselves, one stands out, The Celebrant Directory.
Following the search instructions to find someone in your area able to assist you. Delving through the profiles, scanning the pictures and reading the text associated with each one on the page of the celebrant directory and gauging which person resonates with you, your next move is to make contact.
To hear a comforting, reassuring voice can put you immediately at ease as the basics are explained, allowing you a moment to formulate a few questions of your own
If there is a mutual feeling of kinship over the telephone and a desire to appoint your selected celebrant, arrangements are made for a face to face meeting where a stronger, supportive bond can be generated to fulfil this task that you would probably wish to get on with. You are in control.
