What Is A Funeral Celebrant

A Funeral Celebrant is a person who can help plan, write and lead a Funeral service.

People from all walks of life choose to become a celebrant but all are motivated by a strong desire to help families give the person who has died a good send-off, one that honours, gives thanks for, and, even, celebrates a life.

Some Celebrants are introduced to families by a Funeral Director, others are approached directly. Either way, all will work closely with the family and the funeral director to ensure everything goes to plan.

Celebrants are creative, alternative, ceremonial leaders. They are an excellent choice for those who want to honour the life of a deceased loved one. Ceremonies that may or may not be religious in nature, but that are both deeply moving and meaningful for those who are bereaved.
