ANN BROWNCivil Funeral Celebrant
A civil funeral is a ceremony that reflects the beliefs and values of the deceased rather than those of the minister or celebrant. In consultation with the family, I will create a highly personal ceremony that accurately portrays your loved one. I will work closely with your Funeral Director and maintain a high degree of personal contact with you at all times, right from the initial meeting through to creating and delivering a service that provides solace to those attending.
There was a time when a funeral was only ever conducted by an ordained minister but nowadays not everyone holds religious beliefs. I will create a ceremony that is non-religious but can, if required, contain a beloved prayer or hymn. Together we will create a ceremony which is truly reflective of the person that you have lost. You may like me to deliver the entire service or you may like me to assist family members and friends who wish to contribute. However you would like the service to be conducted, I can help you to arrange it.
