Messages of thanks

Dear James, I just needed to thank you so very much for the beautiful service you gave for my husband Ken. It was everything I wanted it to be and I could not have wished for anyone better to deliver it. From the welcome to the eulogy it was very fitting and the readings you chose were so apt. I’m so glad we found you!  Thank you so very much,



Dear James, We would like to express our sincere thanks for your work on Dad’s funeral service. We were all very upset in the beginning and really unsure where to begin, however we discovered you and suddenly everything began to fit into place. You visited us at home with the whole family  present to begin to build a picture of him. Then came the hard part, the actual day of the funeral. But again you made it feel a lot easier, and delivered the eulogy in a way which summed up Dad in exactly the way we all knew him. everyone said afterwards that it was just like you knew him too.  You made a sad goodbye a lot easier with a lot of nice memories and you even raised a smile and laugh at the graveside service.

Hello James. Just a quick email to thank you for the lovely service you provided for our dad. You took the time to make sure that it was exactly what we wanted. Throughout the whole time you gave us constant reassurance and support making sure we were able to give him the send off he truly deserved. You come highly recommended by myself and my family and we would like to thank you for being a part of his special day. Thank you also for all the comfort and support you provided us with at such a difficult time.

Many thanks


Hi James. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your professionalism, understanding and care yesterday. The children coped amazingly well and with happy memories of their dad, not sadness. I understand my demands must have been challenging for you, as was making the day work for two young children. Everybody came to me to say what an amazing job you did. Again, from myself and my family thank you so much.



Dear James, Thank you so much for my father in law’s funeral service yesterday. Many people commented how nice it was. My own mum who attended with me said it was just as if you had known him in person for many years and you described him to a tee. It made the event so much more personal, warm and genuine. It really helped myself and my girls to move forward in our journey. Thank you once again for making an otherwise very sad day full of happy memories.

Julie and family


Dear James, We would like to thank you very much for helping us to say goodbye to our son, partner, brother, and friend. We are so grateful that we chose you to be our celebrant. The guidance and advice you gave us in the days following Jim’s passing was truly amazing. You listened to us talk about his life and somehow made sense of it all, and you wrote a touching and memorable eulogy. So many of his friends and family commented on how emotional they found the service, though it didn’t follow the elements of a traditional service.

By helping us to put together a celebration that really was him you showed how much you took the time to understand a grieving family. Jim would have enjoyed it too. Please accept our heartfelt thanks for everything you have done or us.
With thanks and regards, Sue, Bob, Sara, and Sarah


Dear James, Just a quick note to thank you for the lovely service you provided for mum. It was exactly what we wished for. The guidance and advice were amazing as were the little touches like finding the beautiful Scottish poem. You took everything on board we said about mum and made it into a lovely service which all our family and friends commented on. Such a fitting service to say goodbye to mum. Thank you.

Love and best wishes, Evelyn, Dave and family.


Dear James, I felt I had to write to say thank you for the perfect service you conducted for our mum. I’m sure when you heard the plans we had for the service you must have thought I had lost my mind! I appreciate that the Celebrant pretending to answer a text from ‘the other side’ isn’t the norm, but do you know what, mum would have howled at it. When I asked people after the service what they thought they honestly said it was the best funeral they had ever been to!

Whilst a funeral is never going to be a particularly happy event, mums service was just as we wanted, a chat about her life and her funny ways. People left smiling and having a little jig to Leo Sayer which was what we wanted, and more importantly what mum would have wanted. Thank you for agreeing to conduct the service in the way we requested. When I think back to it I smile. You made a sad day more happy.

With Kindest regarsds, Debby


Hi James. Our family would like to thank you for all your help and support with Duncan’s funeral service. Before you visited us we were struggling with what seemed like an overwhelming task.  After spending a few hours with us, you helped guide us through the processes, listening to our collection of random stories and anecdotes, and somehow managing to decipher all of this into a fantastic eulogy that captured Duncan’s life.

On the day of the funeral you delivered a wonderful service with a few light hearted comments that helped lift spirits and bring a smile to everyone’s face which is something Duncan would definitely have approved of. Thank you so much for everything and being part of the day.

Hi James. I want to extend mine and my family’s gratitude for the way you presented the service and eulogy for Mum. Everybody has raved about it, and we all agreed it was as if you knew her personally, you did an amazing job. I would have no reservations in recommending you to other people.

Thank you again, Barbara


Dear James, On behalf of myself and my sons we would like to say thank you very much for talking Frank’s funeral service. At our first meeting you treated us gently and considerately at a very difficult time, encouraging us to discuss our memories and thought about Frank so easily. You conducted the service with sympathy and it greatly helped to make it so personal top us. Many of the congregation made similar comments us, so again thank you very much.

Hi James. Really sorry I haven’t been in touch before now. I just wanted to say thank you so much for your help in organising the service for Mike and for the lovely eulogy you gave for him. We really appreciated the time you spent with us finding out about him. Everyone commented that the service really reflected Mike and we couldn’t ask for anything more than that.

With kind regards and sincere thanks.

Hi James. Mums service was unique for her and was complimented upon by both family and friends.

We couldn’t have said goodbye to her in a more appropriate way and I can honestly say that I would recommend you personally and your professionalism to anyone else going through a bereavement.

Thank you so very much, with kind regards,
