Although often one of the most difficult times of our lives, losing someone we love means that we will need to arrange a ceremony that helps us, and all who gather, to say our farewells and to celebrate our memories. It would be my privilege to assist you at this time. Together we can create a ceremony that is true to the person whose passing we mark and whose life we celebrate. This can be either as the Funeral itself or as a separate Life Celebration ceremony.

Having conducted hundreds of funerals over more than 35 years, I can help you with ideas, and will create a ceremony for you based on traditional and contemporary sources, as well as leading the ceremony through for you. When you are wondering what to do next, I can help.

Call me direct on 07967 327230 or ask your Funeral Director to contact me.

"I just wanted to write to you to express our deepest thanks to you for your support, connection and delivery of such a perfect eulogy.

Firstly, the care you took to dig down and capture the essence of Mum was very skilful and also helped me go back to who she was before the last decade of illness became the shroud of my relationship with her and her identity. It actually marked a turning point in my ‘handling’ of the whole process of the loss.

Secondly, taking the time to check that it was right meant that those tiny details that we altered led to the eulogy being absolutely perfect and ringing absolutely true. It resonated with everyone and we have been overwhelmed with messages telling us how much it brought her to life and  released the journey of her life in such a warm but tasteful way. It has been a great comfort to so many people.

Finally, we were helped significantly by your words as we arrived and felt able to speak without pressure. Your calm demeanour certainly contributed to the feel of the day and I don’t think this can be underestimated.

It was a surprise to me that having begun the day feeling such sadness, anxiety and tension, I ended feeling something close to joy after so much love, connection and warmth all day."

"Piers could not have been more helpful and sympathetic. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to help organise and deliver a beautiful ceremony to remember a loved one".

Funeral FAQs


How will we connect with you to discuss our plans?

You can either contact me directly or ask your Funeral Director to get in touch. After that I'll arrange with you a suitable time for me to visit and talk about the person  who has died and the funeral. I'm also able to arrange funerals via Zoom or on the phone.

Can you write and give the eulogy?

Yes - though if someone from the family or a friend wishes to do this, I'm very happy to help them think this through. 

What elements can we include in a funeral ceremony?

Anything you like - as long as it suits you, and is being kind and respectful to others. Traditional elements - readings, poetry, music etc are all possible, but so are other elements. I'll guide you when we meet.

Is there anything we MUST include?

No. The ceremony is yours, needs to be true to the person we are remembering and helpful to guests. 

Can we have a prayer?

Yes, of course, but I'm equally happy should you choose not to.

Do we have to have a prayer, or mention God?

No. The service needs to be true to you as a family and to the memory of the person, so the choice is entirely up to you. As a person with an open spirituality, I'm happy to follow your lead.

A different question?

Get in touch. I'll be happy to talk with you.

"I have been asked to pass on a big thankyou for today, you made a difficult and sad day, pleasurable and we all had a good laugh at the memories.

The rest of the family thought you knew D personally, as you had put together the stories extremely well..."
