Inspirational Ideas

I am here to help you explore the endless funeral choices you have.
Whether you are planning for yourself or a loved one, you deserve to know what your options are.

What is a Normal Funeral?

As well as an acknowledgment of a loss, a funeral should be a reflection and a celebration of life.
My aim is to inspire and encourage people to take an active role in planning and personalising their funeral or think outside of the box when planning a funeral for someone close to them

We have written a number of modern alternatives to a traditional funeral and not all of them include burial or cremation at the end.
