A respectful Commemoration of Life or Remembrance ceremony gives family and friends the opportunity to remember the many ways in which their lives have been touched and enriched by a loved one.
There are no rules on how a funeral service is performed when you use a celebrant. Using the experience and support of our Funeral Celebrant Stephen Oldham, you can personalise and individualise every aspect of the service to make it a truly memorable occasion.
Our Funeral Celebrant Stephen will help you with every aspect of the service. Some choices that you may like to include are:
Choosing a special and memorable location or venue for the service
Placing personal items inside the coffin such as photos, letters or drawings
Organising for the deceasedís favourite music to be played, recordings or a live performance
Placing a photo of the deceased on the coffin for the service
Placing personal items on the coffin during the service
Inviting family and friends to become directly involved by delivering a eulogy, reading a poem or placing personal or meaningful items on the coffin
Arranging for clubs or organisations to attend or form a guard of honour eg. Bowling Club, sporting club, CWA, RSL
Placing flower petals on the coffin or into the grave as part of the service.
Arranging for family/friends to carry the coffin at the church, chapel or graveside
Funeral Celebrant Stephen Oldham welcomes family and friends at an outdoor funeral.
