What is a Celebrant
A celebrant is someone who supports families experiencing loss of someone loved and cherished. During this time when they feel vulnerable and sad the role of the funeral celebrant is to help families to create the most fitting and memorable service to
the life lost and to celebrate many facets of the loved one’s life to captivate the thoughts of the people paying their respects. A celebrant is neither affiliate or attached to either the church or a particular religion which means that they can officiate non-religious services that the family find more fitting and appropriate. Of course, religious, spiritual and other content can form part of the service. The beauty being that the family really can pay tribute as they please
The Civil Funeral Ceremony is about celebrating life, quite often it will take place at a crematorium or non religious burial site. The ceremony can be non-religious or part-religious by including hymns and short prayers.
Other services include memorial ceremony, remembrance, burial of ashes and pet memorials.
