Website: www.life-celebrant.co.uk
Address: Halifax
Info: I live West Yorkshire, and originally trained with the Church of England as a Reader (Licensed Lay Minister). Whilst undertaking that role I had the privilege to work with many families in saying farewell to their loved ones. After a working career which started in the health service and in industry I have recently worked with a number of charitable groups providing support to the most vulnerable in society. As such I have much experience in working with people at some of the most precious and special times in their lives. It is this background that has prepared for my new role as an Independent Celebrant.
As a celebrant I always aim to provide a personal service working closely with families to ensure that their wishes are given precedence.

Website: www.liverpoolcelebrant.co.uk
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.

Mike Norbury
Trading as: Mike Norbury – Celebrant

Mobile: 07568 9148844
Email: mikethecelebrant@gmail.com
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.

Mobile: 0792 7019534
Email: 22cpalk@gmail.com
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: NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy
Info: I am an independent civil celebrant based in Tameside, Greater Manchester, holding the Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy. This means I have achieved the highest accredited qualification available in funeral celebrancy, and am able to deal with the creation and delivery of a funeral or other end-of- life ceremony with respect, sensitivity and empathy.
I can work with you to create a meaningful funeral, memorial service, or scattering-of- ashes ceremony that is unique to the individual that died. This can include religious elements such as hymns or prayers, or the ceremony may be entirely non-religious, or humanist. My training as a civil celebrant means I can offer this flexibility.
With a career history in journalism, I have excellent writing skills and therefore utmost confidence that I can craft the perfect script for you. After the service, you will receive a beautifully presented copy of the full ceremony script to keep as a memory.
I also offer other celebrant services, please see my website for details.
