Hi, I'm Caroline
Hello I am Caroline and live in Derbyshire in the East Midlands in the UK.
I am friendly and passionate about listening to people share their stories.
All my working career I have been employed in people centred jobs and have also been officiating funeral services for the past 15 years within my local Parish Church as a Lay Worker.
So it was a natural progression 3 years ago to set out as a Funeral Celebrant, offering families individually created services that reflect and honour their loved one.
I have spent over 10 years with Cruse Bereavement Care and I trained with The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. I am fully insured for my Celebrant role.
I work throughout the Midlands area up to a 50 mile radius but open to receive other enquiries.
What's my ceremony style?
I am sensitive and very intuitive and approachable to those around me.
My style is one that is both professional but warm and friendly.
Services may be held in Crematoriums, Graveside, Natural Burials or a venue of a person’s choosing.
I also offer the following services:
Living Funerals, plan now the kind of funeral you would want , so as to not leave distressed relatives deciding what your final wishes would be.
Memorial services following maybe a Direct Cremation Service or a private family committal.
Scattering or Interment of Ashes local graveyard or places that hold meaning to you or the loved one you have lost.
Funeral service £190
A Special Memory
Why choose Caroline?
I am friendly, and approachable but professional in my work to listen to people share their stories of a loved one they have lost.
Their service may have religious or secular content to celebrate a life and I will help them with their choices of music , poems and readings.
I work with people to create lasting memories of the loved one they have lost and include them in phone calls and drafts before the service.
I have many years experience in taking a wide range of services from sadly babies and young people right through to those having lived long lives.

Death is hard for everyone to cope with when losing a loved one, I try to offer families a safe haven of support throughout their difficult days.
From the moment I receive the call to care for a family I contact them and listen to them so I can reflect their loved one’s character and the life lived within the service I create with families wishes always considered.
Each person and family is different and unique so the service for their loved one should be also, that is always upper most in my mind when conducting services.
I arrange Living Funerals where I sit with a person to talk through what their send off should be , choose their own music and readings.
They help me write their life story in a way they want to be remembered and say what they wish to be said.
This can be written down for the appropriate time and family be made aware of it being in place.
Pet Services, our pets are our friends , losing a pet is always very hard , I am able to create a fitting memorial for the loss of your pet, whether you hold their remains or not but create a service for a person to say goodbye.
Why choose Caroline for your funeral?
If someone would care to read reviews on this site and other sites I think those families offer the reason why people should feel confident in choosing me to care for their loved one.
If a person has ideas of how to say goodbye to a loved one or if they really do not know where to start I can help to walk alongside them in this difficult time offering a guiding hand helping them with their choices.

Caroline is an amazing celebrant, the funeral in Caroline’s memory is that of my beautiful angel liberty.
Caroline went above and beyond for my family following such an awful event. Caroline was able to organise a crèche for any little ones who attended the funeral of which there were quite a few, along with a wonderful volunteer who kept the bubble machines topped up throughout the funeral. The church was decorated absolutely beautiful and Caroline spent a lot of time with us arranging everything to be just right for our princess. We didn’t want it to be dark and sad we wanted to celebrate liberty in our final goodbye. And with Caroline’s help we were able to do just that. Caroline also allowed us to send balloons with messages attached up to liberty from the church grounds. That day was extremely difficult, but thanks to Caroline and her kindness it was bearable and to this day Caroline is still helping me get through my grief and there aren’t enough words to say how amazing this lady is. Thank you Caroline for all that you did and still are doing xxxx
A beautiful service for my dad, Caroline is very kind and thoughtful and made sure everything was perfect in these difficult times. I would definitely recommend Caroline for a fitting send off for your loved one
