Celebrating Life, Reflecting on Death: Funerals/Memorials/Scattering of Ashes

After a long, unbroken and highly successful career of service to others, Effie uses her person-centred knowledge and experience to help people to mark the death of a loved-one through a formal ceremony. As a fully qualified and experienced Civil Funeral Celebrant she works with you, the client, to create a personally-tailored ceremony that is exactly as you would wish it to be.

The ceremony that she creates captures the very essence of the person and tells the story of the life that has been lived. She meets with you to discuss fully your wishes for the ceremony.  You will be able to check the ceremony content beforehand and she provides a full text of the ceremony for you to file with your papers and to remind you of the significance of that formal bye-bye to your loved-one.



Effie has been awarded the National Qualification Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy (QCF). This means that she

  • has achieved the highest possible qualification in Funeral Celebrancy in the UK
  • has been rigorously assessed for her skill and suitability as a Funeral Celebrant
  • is able to create and deliver an appropriate and distinctive ceremony with sensitivity and empathy


Overall, this means that you can have every confidence in trusting her with the funeral, memorial or scattering-of-ashes you are arranging.
