Praying Together

Working Together

I am proud to have built up long-term partnerships, working with a number of funeral directors across Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire. I consider myself a true professional, who adds value to every funeral director I work with. But, naturally, it is the opinion of the families I work with which are the ones that count and thankfully, they also agree.

Should you be considering adding an experienced, professional celebrant to your roster, then I'd be delighted to set up a call, Zoom conversation or meeting with you, for us to get to know each other and go from there. Please feel free to contact me, if you'd like to set this up.
