Dealing with the death of a loved family member isn’t easy. It can be extremely stressful for everyone involved and the period is filled with grief. At times like this, it helps to have the right kind of support and help. Planning a funeral service or even a memorial service isn’t easy either and you need some help on that count too. This is where a celebrant comes in. These professionals are like clergymen but do not have any religious leanings.

Many families now prefer to organize more personalized funeral services and don’t want any scripture reading etc. A celebrant can help in this aspect, but they can do much more than that. They also support the family in their time of grief and can manage the ceremony as you want it. They have a special way of helping families heal. The celebrant can talk about the decedent, their life and likes. The idea is to honor the person that has passed, in a unique way.

A Unique Funeral Service

This way of handling the funeral service provides some solace to the family of the deceased. Planning a service like this involves having a detailed discussion with the celebrant about what your loved one liked, and the kind of life they led etc. Reminiscing these things helps you heal from within. In short they help you plan and organize a funeral service that allows you to set your grief aside and focus on all the good things and good times you spent with your loved one.

You can have a discussion with your family members and determine whether hiring a celebrant is the best option for you. If you want to know more or need to book a service, just give us at Willowbrook Cemetery a call on (203) 222 8646 or contact us through our online form.
