Frequently Asked Questions & Support
What can you help us with?
I meet and liaise with you, I gather information, stories, anecdotes, characterisation of your loved one and I write and deliver the tribute to them.
Can I have religion?
Yes you can, I can advise you on what passages, prayers, hymns would suit you best.
Can I have music?
Yes you can, either pieces loved by the deceased or yourselves, or I can suggest something appropriate for you.
Can my family say a reading?
Yes they can.
It can be fitted into the service. I will have a copy and can take over if the emotion gets too much.
How will I know what you are going to say?
I will email a draft script to you, in advance of the funeral allowing time for changes or additions to be made to it. I will also send a full script out to you to keep.
When do you come and meet us and where?
I will telephone you and make arrangements to visit, either at your home or a location of your choice.
I can visit evenings, daytime or weekend, whenever is convenient.
How are you paid?
I am usually paid by the funeral directors, however if I work in advance with a family, payment can be made directly to me.
