David Linaker

Trading as: David Linaker – Independent Celebrant
Mobile: 07530 007163
Address: 2 Russell Terrace, Russell Street, Wilton, Salisbury, SP2 0BG
Training: 21 years as a parish priest in the Church of England.
Info: Born and brought up on the Isle of Wight, David experienced loss at a young age when his mother died of cancer. Subsequent personal bereavement developed in David a deep interest in human grieving and a sensitivity and talent for helping others following the death of a loved one.
As an ordained minister in the Church of England for 21 years, David acquired a huge range of skill and experience in helping people to mark significant rites of passage. Now operating independently, he is able to bring this experience to bear.
David is also an experienced teacher and mentor, coach and 'soul friend' and works in an atmosphere of complete confidentiality.
Ever mindful of the unbreakable connections that make up a whole person - spirit, mind and body - and with his long professional experience, intellectual rigour and deep compassion, David can provide you and your family with genuinely holistic support.

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..
