Funeral Services: I truly believe that to conduct a beautiful funeral ceremony is the last nice thing I can do for someone, and as such I will ensure that I write a very special Service with your loved one as the 'Star'. It will always be entirely about the person you have lost, while showing true empathy with the family and friends who are grieving. Services can be non-religious or semi-religious, the content is down to you. I recognise the huge importance of this occasion, as an opportunity to say a formal, yet personal, farewell to a loved one. I will visit you in your own home, or elsewhere if you prefer, to discuss all options, at your convenience, and promise the utmost respect and dignity at all times. I also guarantee reliability and attention to detail.
Weddings/Civil Partnerships/Renewal of Vows/Blessings: These are, by their nature, incredibly joyous occasions, and require careful planning to ensure that everything runs smoothly and is enjoyable and stress-free. I am more than happy to help you with the formal part of your day. I will meet with you, and assist you to construct a personalised, meaningful and romantic ceremony that will ensure your special day remains a valuable memory. Your service can be in any location of your choice, so the possibilities are endless! I will endeavour to create a truly outstanding occasion for you and guarantee reliability and attention to detail at every turn. NB. Don't forget under English law you will need to be 'legally married' (i.e. in a Register Office for example) before your unique and special ceremony takes place.
Naming Ceremonies: Whether it be for your precious newborn, or maybe to welcome step-children or adopted children to the family, or a naming or re-naming at any stage of your life, I am there to help you to organise a very special ceremony. I will be pleased to discuss everything with you, and will entertain in particular any special requests or procedures you may wish. Nothing is set in stone, and I am very flexible and easy-going in my approach. These ceremonies can be conducted wherever you wish too. This is your day.

Training: NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy
Info: Thank you for taking an interest in me and in the services I provide.
I moved to Suffolk from London, in 2007 and I am now very happy to be able to call the beautiful village of Yoxford, home.
My career history has consistently involved serving my local communities; from Director of Housing for a leading Housing Association to running a charity providing legal advice services to the homeless.
My years of working directly with people from all sections of our society has given me a great appreciation of the diversity of people and an understanding that everyone is unique. It follows therefore, that a one size fits all approach to the milestones of our lives is just not good enough.
I strive to provide you with an excellent, stress free service; a ceremony that is unique to you and the deceased and is mindful of your, and their, wishes and expectations.

Info: For more than 10 years, I have had the joyful opportunity to create and conduct civil, spiritual, interfaith, and same-sex ceremonies. These contain the traditions, rituals and customs that are important to both of you and reflect who you are as a couple. I have a deep respect for and openness to different personal beliefs and cultures and love to weave them together into a harmonious ceremony. I am fluent in French and Italian, and on request, have included elements of many other languages, including Afrikaans, Czech, German, Hebrew, Mandarin, Portuguese and Russian, and will gladly expand to the language of your choice. I use my skills and experience as a trained soprano, professional writer, storyteller and an experienced actor to give you a unique, elegant and memorable service.
For funerals, I would be honoured to work with you to create a respectful, meaningful and memorable service for your loved one.

Jim Maltby

Mobile: 07765 253756
Info: I fell into the role of celebrant after giving a eulogy at my late Father’s funeral service and it was suggested that I should have taken the whole service myself.
I now work with most of the funeral directors in the mid north Essex area, officiating at both cremations and burials for their families.
I pride myself on being able to put bereaved families at ease when I meet them and to create and deliver bespoke services for them, very much focusing on celebrating life.
I consider myself very fortunate to have a strong and clear speaking voice and also the ability to conduct services in a relaxed manner which is greatly appreciated by those present.
I genuinely love my job as every family and service is different and I’m able to help families through traumatic periods.
