A Living Eulogy

You Have Choices!

What do your next of kin know about your early life and the experiences that have shaped you into the person you are today?

Sadly, I meet with families who know very little

of their loved one's early life and childhood experiences.

I can sit with you and help you create a 'living eulogy'

documenting your life and achievements from birth to present day.

This takes more of a 'document' form or

depending on circumstances, can also be created for delivery.

A 'Living Eulogy' is NOT a legal document. 

It is simply your story; something to share with your next of kin

or to leave in safekeeping with the executor of your will.

Alison can also assist you in clearly documenting

any additional wishes you may have for your funeral

such as music choices, readings and other funeral choices.

"It's hard to talk to loved ones about dying."

It is not uncommon for people to pay for their funeral in advance,  

but have you spoken to those you love regarding the

aspects of your funeral that will make it personal to you. 

Create A Good Funeral

It can be liberating, even empowering,

to feel so in control of the creative aspects of your own funeral.

Not only can it be fun, yes fun, to make these decisions, but

it can leave you with a great sense of achievement,

and an appreciation for the life you are still living.

Music and Video Editing

 
Bespoke Tracks

There are times when

creating the music for funerals requires extra attention and care.

Sometimes, the family wish

to play an excerpt of a song,

a medley of several songs, or

there's a section of the piece that

needs editing out completely.

Alison is adept at music editing 

and can ensure that all of your

music needs are met.

Visual Tributes

Crematoriums in the UK offer 

the facility to include professional

photo tributes within the ceremony.

This comes, however, at a premium.

You may also be holding your funeral service at an independent venue,

where this service is not on offer.

Even if I am not acting as celebrant,

If you require assistance with your

visual tribute, get in touch.

POA

Orders of Service

You may engage your Funeral Director

to design your Order of Service.

Do ask to see examples of

the service they provide and

what content can be included

in the booklet.

Working alongside you in planning

the ceremony gives Alison the ability

to design a highly personal booklet,

incorporating elements that she is

including within the service.

Funeral Vocalist

In Humble Service

For so many reasons

I resist the opportunity to sing at funerals that I'm officiating.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the service,

it simply feels 'too much' to officiate the ceremony

and have that additional 'presence' as a vocalist.

Please do not be offended if I decline your request.

Singing at a funeral is not for everybody

and it is certainly not a performance.

It requires a certain strength & fortitude 

to stand before a congregation in their time of grief.

My voice is an extension of my service and of my spirit.

Raised in the church by two loving parents with beautiful voices,

I appreciate the healing power of song, and of the human voice.

Should I accept your request to sing,

I will offer my voice to you,

with a genuine heart.

in humble service.
