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 often meet with families who know very little

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

I can work 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, but 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 elements.

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

It is quite common for people to have a pre-paid funeral plan,  

but they don't speak to their loved ones regarding the

aspects of their funeral that will make it personal to them. 

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 actually fun, to make these decisions,

but it can leave you with a great sense of achievement to know that your family are well taken care of and you are left with

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 a small excerpt of a song,

a medley of several songs, or

perhaps they have something on 'vinyl' that needs converting.

Alison is adept at music editing 

and can ensure that all of your

music needs are cared for.

POA

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

Your Funeral Director may offer to design your Order of Service.

On request, they will show you examples of the service they provide and advise you on what content they need to print the booklet for you.

As an additional service, Alison is able

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 parents with beautiful voices,

I appreciate the healing power 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.
