Funerals

At a time of deep loss and grief the last thing you want to do is arrange the funeral service. Choosing the right celebrant is an important part of this process, and this comes at the time you least want to make the effort.

Our mission is to create a ceremony that reflects the wishes, beliefs, cultural background and values – religious or non-religious – of your loved one and your family. You have complete choice of and final approval over the ceremony.

We have all attended services that did not give any comfort or support to those who are grieving over the loss of a loved one, that is something that Edwina will ensure does not happen for you.

I will spend as many hours as needed to create the ceremony and learn about your loved one in unhurried meetings with designated family and friends. I work with you to carefully craft a eulogy and create a ceremony with music, quotes, readings, unique symbols and rituals. No ceremony is delivered unless every detail of the eulogy is checked and approved by the designated family representatives.

I will make sure the ceremony reflects the wishes of the family at the location of your choice. This is a hard time for everyone, but when the family participates in the celebration of a life well lived it provides a measure of comfort at a time of deep loss.

Nothing can take away the grief, but a genuine, well-prepared tribute may ease the pain. Whether your family is secular, religious, spiritual or interfaith, or if you simply wish to express yourself in a manner of your own choosing, I can help to create a meaningful, memorable, fitting end of life tribute.

To relieve the stress during this period of mourning, fees will be discussed and arranged through the Funeral Director at the time of the ceremony.
