Portchester Civil Celebrancy
Portchester Civil Celebrancy




I believe that a funeral is about the person who has died and the life they led.  Some of the best funerals I have attended included laughter as well as tears. but most of all offer some shared comfort to family and friends.


For that reason I trained as a professional celebrant and have a Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy.  I am also a member of the Insitute of Civil Funerals. I will use all my knowledge and experience to help you through the funeral ceremony.


Not everyone wants the same type of funeral and I will meet with you in your own home to discuss the ceremony fully. You will be able to check the ceremony content beforehand and I will offer you a full text to keep afterwards.


The ceremony will capture the very essence of the person and tell the story of the life that has been lived.   




What People Say:

"A positive and uplifting service, that really captured the essence of Dad".

"Philippa made the whole experience easier to bear - such a caring lady."

"Having Maisie sit by me during the funeral was a positive distraction - all funeral chapels should have a dog!"
