Info: I am 58 years of age, I am married and have two grown up children.
Originally from Northwich in Cheshire, I moved to Shropshire in 1977 when I joined West Mercia Constabulary.
During my 30 years’ service with the Police I was engaged in a number of roles including the C.I.D. Uniform and firearms departments. During the latter stages of my Police career I was trained as a Family Liaison Officer and had the privilege of looking after several families who had been traumatised through criminal and road traffic incidents.
Upon retiring from the Police in 2007 I took up employment with a local Funeral Director and have been involved in all aspects of that profession.
During this time I have been witness to hundreds of funeral services and realised that I could lead a funeral service as good if not better than most of the people I had witnessed.
I started to take up Civil Funeral Celebrancy in April 2014 and to date have carried out over 170 services throughout Shropshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands for a number of Funeral Directors and for many different families who have lost loved ones in numerous different circumstances.

Trading as: Liverpool Celebrant
Mobile: 0744 932 3988
Address: Liverpool, L19
Info: I live in Liverpool and I am most often asked to conduct ceremonies in the North-West of England and North Wales, but I am more than happy to travel anywhere in the UK, or abroad.
I can truly say that 'I love my job'. I love it so much that I don't even think of it as work. I consider it a privilege to help people to mark life's milestones with a personalised, and personal, ceremony: from the first ‘hello’, to the final ‘farewell’ and everything in between.
I worked for the Registration Service as a Superintendent Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages and can help with information about the legal requirements for getting married.
I am fully trained, and experienced, in creating and conducting beautiful bespoke Naming Ceremonies, 'Welcome to the Family', Weddings and Civil Partnership Celebrations, Handfasting/Knot Tying, Commitments, Renewal and Reaffirmation of Vows, Celebration of Life Funerals and Memorial Ceremonies.
I was proud to receive an award as Best Wedding Celebrant in North West England, after being nominated by one of my couples.
In addition to my Celebrancy qualifications, I am a Reiki Master, have a post-graduate certificate in business administration and have studied public speaking, creative writing and journalism. Whilst my training and experience are important, it is my friendly disposition, attention to detail and passion to give people the best service possible that ensures that I always listen to, ask about, write, say and do everything that I can to ensure that everyone has the ceremony that they want and deserve.

Info: I know how difficult it can be to arrange a funeral that feels right, whether it’s because you don’t know for certain what your loved one would have wanted, or because different people in the family have different ideas about what is appropriate. I will work with you to prepare an essentially non-religious ceremony that is solemn and reflective, and which celebrates what is important. You can incorporate poems, readings, memories, special music – and if you request it, familiar prayers and hymns, if this will bring comfort to those attending. The ceremony will truly reflect your own wishes, not what any organisation lays down.
Since 2010, I have been helping families to create a sincere and meaningful farewell. I can make suggestions for poems and readings that will help to express what your loved one meant to you – their loves and interests, your feelings of grief or gratitude for their life, or reflections on the nature of living and dying. There is nothing that legally has to be included, so the wording and content of the ceremony is entirely up to you. After visiting you in your own home, at a time that is convenient, I will prepare a first draft of the whole ceremony for you and your family to look at, and if necessary, amend. Afterwards, I provide a copy of the script in a commemorative wallet.
I am a member of the Dying Matters Coalition, which has the aim of raising awareness of death and bereavement, and promoting openness and communication about people’s wishes. The funeral service is an important part of carrying out what your loved one would have wanted.
But I am not there just for the sad times. You can have a beautiful ceremony for your happy event, whether it’s a baby naming, a significant birthday, a renewal of vows or even the celebration of a wedding. The ceremony can contain whatever elements you choose - perhaps you dream of a sunset wedding by a lake, or in the gardens of a country house, you’d like to mix secular and spiritual music, and you want to be able to choose a well-loved reading from Corinthians combined with your favourite non-religious poems. Maybe you look forward to appointing “guideparents” to make their own promises of support to your new baby, or wearing your beautiful wedding dress one more time at a renewal of vows ceremony in the company of family and friends who could not attend your marriage abroad

Trading as: Mike Norbury – Celebrant
Mobile: 07568 9148844
Training: Mike trained at Honour for Eternity.
Info: I became a Celebrant shortly after the death of my Mother in law, when my wife said “You would be good at that Mike” after listening to a Celebrant take the service.
I made enquiries and started training with a busy and experienced Celebrant in my area. After 12 months training with my mentor I started to take my own Funeral services. I can’t really describe the tremendous honour and privilege it is to be able to take a family through such a difficult and emotional time. It is such so rewarding and fulfilling to be invited into someone’s life and to be trusted to take them through the funeral service for their loved ones.
The role of the Celebrant has so any possibilities and I look forward to following this calling to wherever it may lead.

Training: NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy (RQF) – Civil Ceremonies Ltd
Info: A few years ago, my friend’s daughter died; she was the same age as my eldest. Her funeral, had a huge impact on my life. It was the first celebrant led funeral that I had been to and I was stunned by the difference between this and funerals I had previously attended. I left the crematorium uplifted by the celebration of Katie’s life; warmed by the way the celebrant had captured the essence of her and shared it with those whose lives she had touched and who had gathered to remember and say goodbye. It changed the way I view death and, now I am semi-retired, I feel privileged to be in a position where I can do what that celebrant did - support bereaved families to share their memories, enabling me to capture and tell their loved one’s story in the way they wish, without the ties of ritual or tradition.

Training: Wendi was trained by Civil Ceremonies Ltd.
Info: I was born in Liverpool, a stone’s throw from the magnificent River Mersey. I have lived and worked in Liverpool for most of my life. I have taught in both mainstream and Special Educational Needs schools for over 20 years. I have a naturally compassionate and warm personality. As a celebrant, I can bring the interpersonal skills I have developed over the years and use them to help clients navigate their way through getting the best ceremony for themselves or their loved one. Losing both my parents within days of each other gave me an insight into what a bereaved person or family may need during a deeply difficult time. As a celebrant, I have the privilege of working with people to create and deliver personalised ceremonies for their significant life events..
