Network benefits for funeral celebrants

Network benefits for funeral celebrants Pixabay 389716

The Celebrants Network is developing a number of services and resources especially for Funeral Celebrants, Memorial Celebrants and Celebrants for all occasions.

Our strategy aims to have The Celebrants Network members known before the need for a funeral.

Rationale:

  • 50 years ago families did not ask the undertaker who could do their funeral ceremony 
  • Families had their 'family celebrant' - their minister or priest.
  • As our society has become more secular, civil celebrants have been slowly taking up these ceremonial roles.
  • But not with a clear aim of being the "family" celebrant - to be there for a family's other significant events, so when a family funeral is needed - you, THE family's celebrant, will be the one they turn to (not the funeral company)
  • To strenghten this aim, celebrants need to
    • aim to be "their" celebrant for as many significant events as possible - and if you want funeral work, targeting the more senior age group makes sense.
    • add pre-funeral planning to their list of celebrancy related services
    • network in their local communities to become known, especially by the 60+ age groups.
