My name is Ann Sharples, I am a funeral celebrant located close to Altrincham, Peel Green and Warrington crematoriums but can travel to locations in the Manchester and North Cheshire area.
I am passionate about delivering a service that is personal and all about your loved one.
The service I deliver is individually written to provide a “Fitting Tribute”, to say all that was unique about your loved one. I will visit you and your family, working closely with you to obtain an understanding of your loved ones life, their personality, the things that made them special and the person who they were.
We will take a trip down memory lane, stopping to cover not only the major events but also the smaller often funny moments you shared with them that you hold dear and have become cherished memories. I will then create a written picture, fitting of the life of your loved one.
A celebration of life told in a way that you are comfortable with. The service will be presented in a way that is inclusive of your personal wishes in respect of beliefs and faiths. As a celebrant I will deliver a funeral service that contains many of the aspects of a traditional service without the religious elements. However should you wish to include some elements of religion, such as a prayer, reading or a hymn, they will be included.
You may choose to say goodbye without any elements of spirituality … until we meet again! Or maybe you prefer goodbye, you were so loved and will never be forgotten.
Your loved ones service will be sent to you in advance for you to read and make any changes to ensure you are totally happy with the content. On the day I will present the service with sensitivity, dignity and respect.
Poems are often a feature of the funeral service, they are a beautiful way to capture your thoughts and set the tone of how you want to say goodbye. You could have more than one poem.
It is lovely to include anything that the family or close friends have written, I have listed a few popular funeral poems to help with your choices. Please see separate tab.
If you find that nothing quite fits what you want to say, or you want something more personal that is all about them I also write personalised poems which can be created for any occasion to make it more special.
