Your Day Your Wa​y

Funeral

(Covid19 restrictions may apply)

The Coffin/Casket is 

Present

After you have visited your Funeral director and selected all you need 

for the service at their Chapel/Rooms

 or one at the Cemetery; 

 

You can always choose 

your own Celebrant for an added personal approach. 

If you choose a Church, you will be referred to a religious representative.

 

 As your Civil Celebrant I can provide a secular or spiritual service or a 

mixture of both.


Death within a family is a time of heightened emotion and vulnerability and often surreal.

You want to get it right but you 

are weak, tired and don’t know 

who can help you.

 

 I will listen and with you write your loved one’s story which can also be a healing step for you and all who attend the farewell.

The way you choose to 

honour the passing of a 

loved one is an individual experience. 

A ritual or ceremony can provide meaning, healing and inspiration. 

This is a painful rite of passage 

which signifies the beginning 

of a new relationship with 

the person who has passed.

 

As your Celebrant, I can guide you through this process in a caring and personal way. This ensures you

 feel safe but are always in control 

every step of the way.

 

 Together we can create a fitting farewell that your friends and 

family can share, remember 

and be proud of.

Committal

(Covid19 restrictions may apply)

Grave side or at the 

Chapel/Venue


The Committal  is when Words/Prayers are said as the coffin exits the Chapel/Rooms  following 

the funeral service.

If you have chosen a burial, 

I would follow the cortege

 to your cemetery of choice.  


Here I do a Graveside committal,  publicly or privately with the family members.

__________

Memorial

(Covid19 restrictions may apply)

The Coffin/Casket is 

Not Presen

Memorial Services  either shortly after death or even on the anniversary of death are becoming more popular 

in Australia. 


 Many are choosing Cremation 

followed by a Memorial Service at a later date. This allows more time to prepare and there is no 

restriction on Venues. 


Memorial Services can offer more flexibility in organising a service. 


Although the service is very similar to a funeral, there is more opportunity for tributes from family and friends, often humorous recollections, as  they have more time to prepare.


 These are often referred to as 

‘A Celebration of Life’.

Either the Ashes are present and or a large photo of your loved one and mementos and items that were precious to them set up on a 

table for this purpose. 


As your Celebrant I offer the same support and one on one service as I do for a funeral. 


There is no Committal, as usually the 

cremation has already taken 

place or is in the process, 

(can take a couple of weeks to be notified of ashes collection). 


You may choose to scatter the ashes with guests or privately with the family following the memorial, or at another time, this is up to you.
