What is a Funeral Celebrant

Funeral celebrants Sydney, Liverpool and Parramatta

The role of the funeral celebrant

Kevin and Perram Funerals have a number of exceptionally talented people who officiate at our life celebration funerals. These people come from all works of life, social workers, carers, the funeral industry and former clergy. Each one has one common wish to help families at life’s most difficult time.

The celebrant will design every aspect of the funeral service in order to achieve a service that celebrates and commemorates the life of your family member or loved one that personally reflects that very special life. A few days prior to the funeral you will meet with our celebrant to plan the service. This meeting will develop the style and substance of your personally arranged funeral service. The more input that comes from the family or close personal friend helps make the funeral a fitting tribute for a meaningful and full life.

The day of the funeral you will meet the celebrant before the funeral to discuss any last minutes changes and final details. This personal meeting, together with your personal funeral arranger and conductor, ensures you have a familiar at the funeral who knows exactly what is required at the service.

If you’re worried about the choice of celebrant don’t be. If after your initial meeting with the celebrant you want to change that’s no problem. We have lots to choose from and we are happy to provide you another. As yet it hasn’t happened but the offer is available.
