Shoreline Ceremonies has AFCC accreditation as a Funeral Celebrant, that means I have completed professional education and have a demonstrated ability to conduct a high standard  for conducting funerals.

People who want a non – religious funeral can have an individually tailored ceremony to meet the wishes of their loved one. The bereaved have an opportunity to say goodbye with a personal touch including other family members.

Parents who have experienced still birth or neonatal death are given time to reflect on a life not yet lived and are given time to say farewell.

The needs of bereaved families have not changed but the different ways that funeral ceremonies are conducted have. Some people would prefer private internment and hold a memorial service at a later date, some people may like only a grave side service. The choices are individual and your wishes will be respected as your loved one’s life is farewelled in a dignified and meaningful way.

I can be contacted directly, although Shoreline Ceremonies does work closely with the Funeral Director of your choice, who may also contact me on your behalf. When that happens I contact you to arrange a suitable time to meet you and your family to talk about the eulogy, the choice of music, the readings, and who you may wish to take part in the service.

What is a Eulogy?

A Eulogy is a way of saying goodbye to a person by expressing thoughts, feelings and experiences that honour and respect them. The Eulogy includes facts about their life, their history, the contribution that they made to friends and family and their workplace. The most important thing is to express what means the most to you, even humour can help make the personal tribute unique.
