“I know how difficult it can be to arrange a funeral that feels right, whether it’s because you don’t know for certain what your loved one would have wanted, or because different people in the family have different ideas about what is appropriate. I will work with you to prepare an essentially non-religious ceremony that is solemn and reflective, and which celebrates what is important. You can incorporate poems, readings, memories, special music – and if you request it, simple prayers and hymns. The ceremony will truly reflect your own wishes, not what any organisation lays down.”
Shena Lewington is a Funeral Celebrant, who will lead the service to celebrate the life of your loved one. Her ceremonies are not faith-based but she is able to include elements of a traditional service, such as the Lord’s Prayer or a hymn, if this will bring comfort to those attending.
Shena adheres to a Code of Practice for Funeral Celebrants. She is also a member of the Dying Matters Coalition, which has the aim of raising awareness of death and bereavement, and promoting openness and communication about people’s wishes. The funeral service is an important part of carrying out what your loved one would have wanted. Shena will help you to create a sincere and meaningful farewell.
