Funerals, Memorials & Direct Cremations

When you are grieving the death of your loved one it is a tremendously difficult time.


I am a friendly, caring, approachable funeral celebrant based in Hythe, Hampshire. I am passionate about my work, while drawing from my various life experiences.

My previous work as a nurse and a midwife made me realize how vital it is, to get it right at the beginning and the end of a person’s life. There is only one chance. I have a background in creative writing and work with church to help me create a funeral or memorial ceremony with you for your loved one which tells their life story as it is.

Let us remember your loved one’s life with the great things they did, what they meant and will always mean to you. While showing the real essence of their character.

I am happiest when I am giving my best and that is, to you and your family.

When convenient to you I will provide you with an unrushed home visit, for as long as it takes, to discuss your wishes and plans to craft your ceremony.

You can choose poems, favourite songs, music and hymns. Most crematoriums supply music via the Obitus system which provides a choice of thousands of pieces of songs and music. Please do not hesitate to ask.

Next, I will write up the order of service, the poems, tributes and eulogy (If you wish me to write it) then present it to you for any amendments. I will keep in regular contact with you before the funeral.

If a mourner has hearing loss, I will provide a written version of the script for them to read during the service. Afterwards, I will provide you with your own printed version of the funeral ceremony to keep not only for yourself, but for future generations of your family to read.

Direct Cremation or Burial

Maybe your loved one had a direct cremation and you wish me to lead a memorial, ash internment or ash scattering service at a favourite place outdoors or indoors.


Like other ceremonies, this can be a no faith service, have Christian elements such as the Lord’s Prayer, or a full Christian content. I can provide a service for a direct burial at some burial sites.

I wish you every kind thought and blessing at this very sad time.
