Email: kevblackham448@sky.com
Address: 42 Acer Close, The Rock, Telford, West Midlands, TF3 5DD
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.

Steve Gardner

Mobile: 0787 9648388
Email: stephen.celebrant@gmail.com
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.
