What is a Funeral Celebrant?
A Funeral Celebrant would be a qualified individual who works with a family to craft and conduct a ceremony suiting, and bespokely tailored to, the beliefs, desires and values of a deceased individual and their immediate family members.
Such services may or may not have aspects of traditional ‘religious’ funeral’s and burials, dependent on these wishes.
Are Funeral Celebrants & Funeral Directors the Same?
No,Funeral Directors deal with all aspects of the practicalities of the funeral, whereas the celebrant conducts the service.
This part of the funeral in the past has been hosted more often than not by a Priest, Vicar or Chaplain, but times are changing along with religious views and more people want a more personal service, bespoke service.
Who Can Become a Funeral Celebrant?
Shortly put, anybody who feels they can contribute something to the Funeral Profession can, in essence, train to be a fully certified Funeral Celebrant.
