How is a Funeral Celebrant unique?

The Funeral Celebrant's mission is to create a ceremony that reflects the wishes, beliefs, cultural background and values - religious or non-religious - of your loved one and your family. You have complete choice of and final approval over the ceremony. Nothing is imposed on you.

Above all, a Celebrant funeral reflects the wishes of the family and the deceased. A Celebrant funeral honors death and celebrates life.

Stories from Funeral Celebrants

The Celebrant spends hours creating the ceremony and learning about your loved one in unhurried meetings with designated family and friends. In collaboration with you, your Celebrant will carefully craft a eulogy and create a ceremony with music, quotes, readings, unique symbols and rituals. No ceremony is delivered unless every detail of the eulogy is checked and approved by the family.

With compassion, sincerity and great care, the Celebrant officiates at the ceremony at the funeral home, crematorium, cemetery or memorial location of your choice. After the funeral, the Celebrant presents your family with a beautiful copy of the ceremony as a keepsake.

About Funeral Celebrants

Funeral Celebrants are ceremony specialists who have a sound background in the history of ritual, ceremony and funeral traditions in many cultures and religions. Funeral Celebrants have been drawn to this work by a strong realization that every life has meaning and deserves to be celebrated and celebrated well. Many have experienced grief themselves. All are convinced that funerals can be a valuable source of healing. Nothing can take away the grief, but a genuine, wellprepared tribute may ease the pain.

Why Choose a Celebrant?

"Whether your family is secular, religious, spiritual or interfaith, or if you simply wish to express yourself in a manner of your own choosing, a Celebrant can help to create a meaningful, memorable, fitting end of life tribute. We are so thankful to the Celebrant Foundation. The funeral ceremony for our dad truly celebrated his life, our family history and paid tribute to his military service in WWII, including his being awarded and decorated with the Purple Heart Badge of Military Merit."
