Steve Gardner

Mobile: 0787 9648388
Address: 31 St Pauls Crescent, Pelsall, West Midlands, WS3 4ET
Training: Trained with Humanists UK.
Info: Being a celebrant is a privilege. Celebration of a life well lived is the finest of tributes. Recognition of the grief of those left is essential. Every farewell should be individual and personal for each and all. All funeral ceremonies I conduct are designed and written with a family/ friends wishes at its core. Each ceremony tailored for the individual. Having spent nearly 40 years as a professional nurse I have worked with many individuals and their families in times of celebration and sorrow. Being able to say a meaningful farewell is an important element in resolving the pain of loss.
I work closely with clients to get things right, incorporating their wishes, offering suggestions and choice where unsure. I believe it is important to help and support families participate in a ceremony as much, or little, as they are able or desire.

Shena Lewington

Telephone: 01270 505512
Info: Since 2010, I have been helping families to create sincere and meaningful farewells. I can make suggestions for poems and readings that will help to express what your loved one meant to you – their own loves, your feelings of gratitude for their life, or reflections on the nature of living and dying.
I know how difficult it can be to arrange a funeral that feels right, whether it’s because you don’t know what your loved one would have wanted, or because family members have different ideas. I will work with you to prepare a ceremony which celebrates what is truly important. You can incorporate prayers and hymns, if this will bring comfort to those attending.
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 renewal of vows or the celebration of a wedding.

Carol Palk

Trading as: Carol Palk Civil Celebrant
Mobile: 0792 7019534
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.
