Welcome, I'm Julie
I'm here to help you find the words.
As an independent funeral celebrant, I work in partnership with you to create a bespoke service that honours, celebrates and reflects the life of your loved one.
Whether you would prefer a non-religious or semi-religious service, we will spend time together making sure that everything is just right. I can help with selecting music, poems and readings and support family and friends who would like to speak. You will get the final sign-off on the service, to ensure it is exactly as you would like.
I enjoy living in the lovely borough of Charnwood in Leicestershire with my partner and two sons.
I have almost 30 years business experience and have spent the last 5 years supporting funeral directors with listening to their client's experience in order to continually improve their service.
An experienced public speaker, I have enjoyed engaging audiences from small groups of trainees to conference audiences of up to 500 people over many years and different types of event.
I help to create bespoke non-religious and semi-religious services for cremations, traditional and natural burials scattering of ashes, remembrance and memorials.
I can also help you to pre-plan your own service should you wish to.
I will assist, if required, with the selection of music, poems and readings, and be there to support friends and family who may wish to speak.
After the service you can choose to have a bound copy of the eulogy to keep.
Making a Difference
It is important to me that I give back to the local community that I live and work in. If you would like me to support your local charitable group or organisation with public speaking, please do get in touch.
This year I 'Walked out of the Darkness' to support the charity CLASP. This great organisation works to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health challenges and prevent suicide. You helped me raise £190
£2 from each service will be donated to Cruse bereavement care
What do families say?
"I feel I need to thank you again and again for Dad's service. My family were greatly moved by your words, most not knowing half of what you pulled out from my ramblings.... You made it such a perfect send off for a man that not many understood and I felt greatly comforted, as did my children. Keep doing what you do so brilliantly, I can't put into words how much you have helped me."
"Julie put together the most beautiful service for my partner. It was thoughtful, caring and delivered beautifully. Over 350 attended the service as he was a wonderful man. Many of whom commented that it was the best service they had been to. Myself and the family would like to thank Julie for her support & kindness at a a difficult time."
