About Me

From the moment I am contacted I will make a mutually convenient appointment to meet with the family to gather together all the interesting and important memories of the life of your loved one.

Talking about death has always remained a taboo topic, faced and dealt with only when the time comes around , thankfully not on a regular basis. In recent years the focus has moved from being a dark and sombre affair,dark suits and black ties to become a Celebration of Life.

Yes we are grieving, yes there will be tears,but is not wrong to wear colourful clothing and smile as we reflect the love and memories we share.

I have experieced death and personal tradgedy in my own life and can empathise wth everyone that has to come to terms with losing their nearest and dearest. I understand the overwhelming emotions that are attached and will listen and help you to prepare an end of life ceremony.This will be your wishes written and spoken your way....

When we welcome a new birth into the family we share the love and joy that it brings. We celebrate milestones in our lives, School accolades, University degrees,new jobs, eighteen and 21st birthdays marriage and much more..

So in just the same way as we close the last chapter of life, we can share the unique and personal story of our special loved one.
