The Coronavirus has had a devastating effect on life as we know it and as a result it is not possible to have a traditional funeral at the moment. Sadly, this is a time when we need to be around our family and friends, to be able to say goodbye together and to obtain some closure. The funeral helps us to come to terms with the fact that the person we love has gone and without this, we are left suspended and at times unable to grieve. As an alternative to the traditional funeral, we are offering a virtual tribute, a prerecorded video, designed specifically for you, to include elements of a normal service but viewable online via a link. This link you can share with family and friends and either watch it in your own time or schedule a time when family and friends can watch it together in their own homes, respecting social distancing but more importantly staying safe. If you would like to see an example of what a virtual tribute can look like - click here.
Tailored To Your Requirements
When a loved one dies there are often feelings of confusion, loss, sadness and perhaps helplessness. All this, at a time when arrangements need to be made, often a daunting task. The role of the celebrant goes hand in hand with that of the funeral director. We also work in partnership with you, to ensure your wishes and requirements are met.
Your celebrant will meet you either at home, a place of your choice or if necessary over the telephone, to discuss what type of service you require. We can make suggestions and give advice where needed and take you by the hand to help you arrange a personalised tribute. Through discussion and interaction we write the eulogy on your behalf and document the order of service adding in any individual tributes, music or other aspects that you may wish to be included.
