Hi, I'm Andrew
I am an experienced funeral celebrant having officiated at well over 300 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.
£210 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.

As a family we can not thank Andrew Bulman enough for the exceptional service he gave our family, before, during and after our Dads funeral.
Andrew was able to put our family at ease before the funeral when he met with us and we shared our stories of Dad and his life.
We received the draft tribute he wrote within a day, which we were really happy with, as it felt like he had made a personal connection with Dad and then on the day of Dads funeral, Andrew was able to put everyone at ease, and he totally encapsulated who Dad was as a person and he provided the best possible send off he could have had.
After the service, Andrew did not rush off but showed his respect by saying personal goodbyes to all family members and the rest of the congregation.
This man is a Legend and we will be eternally grateful for the care and compassion he showed us.
Thank you x
Lynton Bradley’s service
From our initial conversation to the day of the service, Andrew showed great compassion and kindness. He was genuinely interested in hearing about my dads life and put together the most beautiful and fitting tribute to my dad. The service was really lovely and Andrew delivered the tribute like he personally knew my dad. I highly recommend Andrew, he is so kind and passionate about what he does, I really couldn’t have wished for a nicer service for my dad. Thank you Andrew you made one of the hardest days for me and my brother that bit easier x
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.
