Funeral celebrant for Essex


When we lose a family member or friend, there are so many emotions to deal with, and then so many decisions to make.

These days, you can choose to have the funeral the way you want it. By choosing me to be your Funeral Celebrant, I will create a service just as you wish – modern, traditional, humanist, religious, non-religious, buddhist or a blend of your choice.

You can include any music or songs that you like, and perhaps a reading or poem that reminds you of your loved one. I will work alongside your Funeral Director to create the goodbye that you feel would be most fitting.


My fee is £205 which includes

Visiting you to discuss the funeral ceremony
Creating the completely personalised ceremony
Leading the ceremony
Presenting you with a printed copy of the ceremony

This fee is usually paid via the Funeral Director.

Should you wish to use me as your Funeral Celebrant, you can contact me directly or ask your Funeral Director to do so.

The areas I cover include Benfleet, Canvey, Hadleigh, Leigh, Southend, Thorpe Bay, Shoebury, Rayleigh, Pitsea and Basildon. Other areas by arrangement.


We can discuss choices of music or songs that you would like to be played at the funeral, and perhaps some poems or readings. The choice is yours. I will then write a personalised funeral service that celebrates the life of the person you have lost.

I will send you a copy of this so that you can check it’s exactly what you wanted. On the day of the funeral, I will greet you at the chapel or crematorium and lead you and the rest of the congregation through the service that we have created together to celebrate, to mourn, to say the final goodbye.

In addition to leading a ceremony prior to cremation, I can also provide a ceremony for burial or scattering of ashes.

Sometimes circumstances may mean that you wish to have a memorial service at a later date, I would be happy to create a personalised uplifting ceremony for you.

Perhaps you are looking ahead and wish to arrange your own funeral, to give yourself peace of mind that your life will be celebrated in the way of your choosing. Please contact me if you wish to discuss any of these options further.

Dear Emma
Thank you so much for conducting an excellent service which was well-commented on by all who attended.
Mum would have been pleased that her wishes were adhered to in such a sensitive and caring way.
Hello Emma
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the lovely service you gave for my Nan today. It was so nice, heartfelt and sincere. My mum and my aunt were really pleased with your manner and enthusiasm last Saturday when going over Nan’s life story and how you were preparing mums poem just in case she couldn’t do it. Thank you so much.
It really made such a difference having a lovely person like yourself do the service today compared to some I’ve been to in the past.
Thanks again.
Dear Emma
I just wanted to say thank you so much for Dad’s service last week, you came across very well and everybody commented how nice it all was. Your voice is perfect for such an occasion.
The flower offering was very much appreciated by everyone as was the Order of Service Booklet. I would highly recommend your services, although I hope not to have to too soon! (if you know what I mean)
Best Wishes
