Our Funeral Celebrant

Using our celebrant relieves you of a huge organisational burden at a time of grief.  You will be fully supported throughout the arrangement, planing and delivery of the service.   

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

We truly believe in Celebrating a Life.
