Humanist Memorial Celebrant | Yorkshire
Non-religious memorial ceremonies, written with your words, led by a humanist memorial Celebrant with 14 years’ experience. Only created when such remembrance feels right, usually conducted in a familiar setting or symbolic location and always led in a warm, inclusive and respectful manner.
I design, write and lead humanist memorial ceremonies in Yorkshire (Huddersfield, Halifax, Wakefield, Bradford, York, Harrogate, North Yorkshire), the Peak District and North West.
These ceremonies allow for a more personal, considered and shared experience that not only does your loved one proud, but may feel more accessible than alternatives.
Working with an experienced humanist memorial Celebrant makes space for reflection, discussion and expression, which can in turn become part of the grieving process.
500+ testimonials confirm how this intuitive process rewards every effort invested in it, resulting in a bespoke ceremony that offers insight as well as solace.
‘Our baby son’s humanist memorial ceremony was beautiful. Everyone was blown away. We’re just so grateful. In our darkest times, it’s been a pleasure to work with you. I cannot imagine there being another Celebrant I could have felt in such safe hands with.’

We would choose which family or friends contribute to the writing in advance or are directly involved on the day: a select few or wider mix.
Additional bespoke elements can also be added e.g. a bespoke reading written with tributes from friends of the deceased, fond of the same hobby.
Rather than a stranger speaking of your loved one in an unfamiliar way, the tone of my carefully crafted ceremonies and sensitive delivery is wholeheartedly authentic.
There is something hugely comforting about such a collective act, combining words, feelings and memories, bringing together all the people to whom this person mattered.
