Funerals

Many people still think of a Funeral as a sad occassion, a time to mourn and cry over a life lost. They don’t have to be like this though. They can be a time to remember all the good times and laugh at memories of the person.
As a celebrant I will work closely with the family and the funeral directors, to compose and deliver, a wonderful ‘Celebration of Life’ Service for the family and friends of the person who has died. Enabling them to re live their most precious memories and Honour that persons passing in a unique and personal way.
I will come and spend time with you as a family and gather all the relevant information to put a wonderful ceremony together. I can help advise on readings and poems and am happy to add religious elements into the service if required.

I also offer memorial services and internment/scattering of ashes ceremonies.

As well as cremation and burial services I also offer memorial services, Internment and scattering of ashes services and will help with any pre need arrangements. Families will receive a keepsake copy of the ceremony script after the day.

Prices From

£180

Why choose Diane for your funeral?

I will write and deliver a truly personal ceremony, that is exactly as you want it to be. The ceremony will capture the very essence of the person and tell the story of the life that has been lived.

Wonderful Funeral Service Celebrant.

Funeral | 03/25/2024 | Wessex Vale Crematorium

Diane conducted the most wonderful ceremony for our dear old departed Dad. I am so pleased that the undertaker recommended her. From her first phone call to me to the emotional goodbyes after the service, she managed to perfectly balance a high degree of professionalism and friendliness. I did wonder after our initial meeting with Diane how she’d be able to make sense of the information that we fired at her, particularly as a lot of it was rather random and out of chronological order. Then there were the additional pieces of information that we asked to be added at later dates. I need not have worried, she made good sense of it all and delivered it in a very eloquent and professional manner. She used just the right tone and injected a degree of humour at appropriate times without appearing flippant. She was very smartly and appropriately dressed for the part. Several people at the wake told me what an excellent job they thought the Celebrant had done. My Mum was equally impressed, telling me how kind and comforting Diane was both before and after the service. I would not hesitate in recommending Diane to anybody else.

Wedding | 07/30/2022 | Mapperton House & Gardens

We are so grateful to have had Diane as the celebrant for our wedding this July. Diane is one of the kindest people we’ve ever met. She is a wonderful professional and she created a ceremony that surpassed all of our dreams and expectations. It was personal, emotional, and so tailored to us that it was nearly impossible not to cry the entire time.
During the entire planning process, Diane was always willing to zoom call or chat to check the finer details about our love story and to ensure she met our preferences in her speech. She also had wonderful suggestions for the entire ceremony such as for the ring bearers or the readings, and it honestly helped us so much. We fully trusted her, which helped us stay calm and just enjoy the ceremony to the fullest.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Diane!

Diane was the celebrant for our wedding in August 21. From the very start Diane was just brilliant, made us feel at ease. Answered all our questions and gave us some options to what we could have for our ceremony. Even matched our colour theme with her beautiful dress

We really did have a blast with Diane and so glad we picked Family Tree Ceremonies. Thank you so much! And highly recommend. 5*
