Funeral Celebrant

In our desire to provide the highest level of service to you and your family, we are proud to offer the services of a Certified Funeral Celebrant©.

What Is A Celebrant©?

A Funeral Celebrant© is a person who is specifically trained and certified to provide a meaningful funeral service that is personalized to reflect the personality and life of the deceased.


"Mel and I want to personally thank you for your caring manner and your listening ear. We also thank you for suggestions for Bill's memorial service. Your sympathetic guidance was a true blessing through this most difficult time."

Kay C. (Dover, DE)

What Does A Certified Celebrant© Offer Your Family?

  • A Celebrant© offers an alternative to a service provided by a clergy person for those who are not affiliated with a church or who do not wish to have a traditional religious funeral service.
  • A Celebrant© has been specifically trained to design a service that is completely personal, and as unique as your loved one.
  • A Celebrant© will schedule a time to meet with the family a day or two prior to the service and listen to memories and stories from their loved one's life. The essence of the service will reflect these remembrances.
  • A Celebrant© is bound by a Code of Ethics for complete confidentiality in all dealings with the family.

We Believe That Everyone Deserves To Have A Meaningful Funeral!


"I can't thank you enough for all your kindness! I would not have been able to get through my father's funeral without your guidance. The service for my Dad was perfect!! You made us cry, but you made us smile too. Thank you, thank you. All my best,"

Jill C. (Wilmington, DE)
