Hi, I'm Andrew
I am an experienced funeral celebrant having officiated at well over 200 ceremonies.
I help bereaved families create unique semi-religious or non-religious funeral ceremonies for their loved ones and officiate at the cremation or the burial to ensure the family’s wishes are carried out.
I specialise in working with the families of older loved ones.
I work across the West Midlands, as well as Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.
I hold the NOCN Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy which means I have been trained to the highest standard currently available.
I look forward to hearing from you soon with regard to how I can help you create that special funeral for your loved one.
What's my ceremony style?
I undertake semi-religious and fully secular funerals, as well as ashes scattering ceremonies, memorial ceremonies, funeral ceremony, pre-planning and bespoke eulogy writing.
I work closely with families to set the tone of the funeral they want for their loved one. Some people want a the ceremony to be a celebration of life or a more simple memorial for a loved one departed. I am happy and able to introduce humour into the ceremony or ensure that is avoided if preferred.
£200 per funeral inclusive of all costs
My favourite moment as a celebrant was when a 94 year old husband sang “When You Old Wedding Ring Was New” at the funeral of his wife of 66 years. What a privilege to be there.
Why choose Andrew?
I am a very experienced and skilled celebrant. I am totally committed to ensuring families receive the very best service I can provide each and every time. No life is ordinary and unimportant and everybody deserves the funeral they want; the funeral that suits their life and their character.

Wonderful Professional Service
Andrew was a delight and pleasure from the first meeting. He listened diligently to stories about my Father and was able to capture the very essence of who Dad was. He provided a most wonderful, personal service that many attendees asked If Andrew knew my Dad personally,
The service Andrew provided from start to finish was impeccable, truly five star. He was sensitive to our loss, very personable, he wrote a wonderful tribute and delivered it well.
I couldn’t recommend Andrew and his services more highly to help navigate the emotions of planning a funeral service.
Andrew conducted my grandfathers funeral in april 2020, he was that amazing at the kind thoughts and dedication that we saught him again for my nans funeral march this year. He goes above and beyond to help families, his words are truly moving. He is Kind and friendly. I thankyou from the bottom of my heart for your amazing work
Andrew immediately put us at our ease and worked with us through planned changes to the text and music whilst we strove to achieve a perfect balance. On the day he was the first there to greet us and direct us and delivered a beautiful service. Peaceful, nostalgic, a celebration …. he is after all a Celebrant !
His dedication to our well being was in our view above and beyond the call of duty and we cannot recommend him highly enough. Peace and blessings Andrew.
