A funeral can be a time of sadness and grief as you let go of someone close to you. And it can also be a time of celebration of his or her life. Maybe you have a clear idea about what you would like in a funeral ceremony or maybe you would like suggestions to help you to decide what would be most fitting.

The ceremony could be totally non-religious/humanist or one that is totally religious/spiritual or anywhere in between. Whatever your needs and wishes, I can help you to create a funeral that is right for you.

Once we have met, I email (or post) the draft script of the ceremony to you and you can make any changes you wish. This way you can be sure that the final script meets your wishes.

I can cover anywhere up to about 10 miles from Stratford, East London but I can occasionally travel further – a family visit is included. Please contact me for more details and costs.

And remember, you are not limited to a funeral. You may wish to have a memorial service, an anniversary celebration or a ceremony to scatter ashes. Whatever your needs, just ask.


Absolutely Fantastic. And you said all the things we wanted you to say.

I am grateful for your sympathy, gentle guidance and the professional service which you delivered.

We were extremely happy with Ian’s services. We have received very positive feedback from those who attended. And Ian’s supportive way of working with us made the process of creating the ceremony so much easier, smoother, and actually valuable, than we could have envisaged.
