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.

Lesley Tunstall

Trading Name: Apple Blossom Ceremonies
Telephone: 01905 828296v
Mobile: 07896 548516
Email: lesley.tunstall@googlemail.com
Website: www.appleblossomceremonies.co.uk
Address: Ashmoor Barn Main Road, Kempsey, Worcestershire, WR5 3PA
Info: Lesley is a qualified independent Funeral celebrant working in the Worcestershire and South Birmingham Area, creating and officiating bespoke, meaningful funeral ceremonies.

I was born and raised in Birmingham but now live in the Worcestershire countryside.

My background is in accountancy, a career which afforded me the opportunity to travel internationally, working alongside people from different cultures and backgrounds.
Like many people I have experienced the pain of loss and it was when faced with arranging a funeral for my loved one that I realised fully the importance of saying farewell in a way that was both true to her and to us as a family. At this very difficult time, I was introduced to the amazing work of the funeral celebrant, which allowed us to create beautiful memories and led me to rethink my own life and career.

Since completing my training in 2014 I have had the privilege of meeting some wonderful families and have been rewarded with the sincerity of their thanks.
Services Provided: Funeral, Wedding Celebration, Renewal of Vows, Civil Partnership and Naming ceremonies

Janet Williams

Telephone: 07828 705777
Email: janet.williamscfc@gmail.com
Website: www.janetwilliams.uk
Training: Janet was trained by Civil Ceremonies Ltd., and has achieved the NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy (RQF).
Info: I have worked for a number of years as a Funeral Director and Personal Funeral Adviser, arranging funerals of all types.
Translating families wishes into flawless practical arrangements is very rewarding, but doesn’t include the ceremony itself and it was this ‘missing link’ that first led me to undertake the Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy. My past experiences as a qualified nurse, and insight into funeral care have been invaluable in my role as a celebrant.
My aim is to create unique, personal and memorable ceremonies in which families can commemorate and celebrate the lives of their loved ones in the way they wish.
I live near Cheltenham, in Gloucestershire and conduct ceremonies there and in the surrounding counties.
Services Provided: Funeral Services.
Areas Served:
Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Avon.
