Rev. Gail Jeffery Howden Stourbridge, West Midlands and Cambridgeshire. Willing to travel anywhere for agreed additional costs

I offer caring support and understanding on your journey to your chosen form of ceremony, and beyond if desired. I will meet you, and stay in frequent touch, so that together, with as little or as much help and support as you like, we can create a ceremony that truly reflects and celebrates the life and beliefs of your loved one. I specialise in writing and conducting heart-centred, tailor- made ceremonies that are meaningful and supportive. Using a diverse range of music, poems, prayers, readings, etc. as is appropriate to your beliefs and values, and the beliefs and wishes of the person who has died, we will weave together all the threads that create the tapestry of someone’s life, so that their life is truly honoured. I will contact as many friends and family as possible, and support their active participation whilst consulting you at all times on the final ceremony.

Affiliations: One Spirit Interfaith Foundation; member of the Interfaith Ministers Association. 

Fees: £200 for a basic ceremony within the 30 mile radius; any other costs agreed on meeting.

I am willing to travel anywhere for agreed additional costs
