Funeral Ceremonies

It is the role of a Funeral Celebrant to:

  • ensure that the service is conducted with the utmost professionalism and empathy.
  • organise the flow and the order of service
  • conduct and lead the service in accordance with the family’s wishes
  • offer support and assist the family with the structure and design of the funeral service
  • work in any location that the service is taking place, ie: graveside, in the chapel or wherever the ashes are being scattered.

Your Funeral Celebrant will:

  • meet with the family to discuss the service
  • ask appropriate questions to garner an accurate depiction of the person who has died in order to create a fitting service.
  • write or assist with the eulogy
  • talk with family members and friends
  • listen to the family regarding what they would like to include in the service, such as readings, rituals, committal, music, tributes and presentation of the eulogy
  • provide the family with adequate resources
  • liaise with the funeral director
  • try to ensure time is managed effectively
  • offer thoughts and suggestions to the family around symbolism; perhaps special items placed on the coffin, or a photo montage their loved one's life
