Baby & Child Funerals

A beautiful life to be remembered and celebrated.

Firstly, may I offer my sincerest condolences to you at this difficult time. Losing a baby or child is devastating, and I am sorry you are having to say goodbye. It would be an honour to be your celebrant for your son or daughter. I would love to find out all about them, and craft a perfect and personal ceremony that reflects their light, life and beauty. 

Here to guide you on this journey.

As you navigate the grief, I'll be there to guide you and help make the ceremony planning process as easy as possible. I'll work closely with the funeral directors to ensure that everything is seamless and perfect. With my experience and knowledge, I can help you find the words to tell your child's story.

Please get in touch to talk about your requirements.

Ceremonies tailored for your family.

As well as funerals, I offer a range of other bereavement services and ceremonies. From ashes scatterings and interments, to memorials and anniversary remembrance, it would be a privilege to be your celebrant.

Working with your child.

If your son or daughter is receiving hospice or end of life care, it would be a privilege to meet them and get to know them. Some older children and young people have very strong feelings about their funerals, and it would be wonderful to listen to their ideas and work with them and the family to make their goodbye as unique as them.

What happens next.

Once you get in touch, I will be in contact with you as soon as possible. We will arrange a short telephone call or online meeting to talk about your child, get to know each other and discuss your funeral requirements. Once you decide you would like to use me as your celebrant, I will get in touch with your funeral director, and also arrange an in-person or online meeting with you to learn all about your child or baby, and create together the most perfect ceremony for your little one.

I do not charge for standard funerals for under 18's in London postcodes E, N, EC, WC, SE, SW, NW, W, IG and EN. Please get in touch if you are outside of these areas to talk through pricing options.
