Jeremy Grundy - offers a friendly, professional civil funeral planning service for families in the North West London and the Cambridgeshire areas.

I will work closely with you, your family, and the Funeral Director to help create and lead the funeral or memorial service for your loved one and to make sure that it truly reflects and celebrates their life.

The process usually starts with me visiting you in your home, or by zoom, and spending as much time as it takes to ensure that everything goes according to your wishes. We will discuss music choices, readings, poetry, and personal tributes. I will offer my advice and guidance to you only when it is appropriate.

Covid-19 may have taken away your loved one. It may also have denied you, your family and friends from being able to say goodbye and pay the tribute you would have liked to give them through the readings, poems and music
of a funeral service.

In some cases, people may have died on their own, with families being denied the chance to share their last moments together.

If this has happened to your family, you may want to consider holding a memorial service to honour your loved one when the restrictions of social distancing finally allow us to do so.

As your local civil celebrant, I will help to create and lead that special memorial service to reflect and celebrate the life of your loved one. It will give you the opportunity to express yourself in a way that may help give you peace of
mind that was previously denied you.

At all times I will be guided by you and your wishes. Once I have drafted the eulogy and the order of service, I will send it to you for your approval - making sure that everything goes according to your plans.

My fees are £200 which include home visits and liaising with all other relevant parties involved in the service.

I was trained in 2010 by Anne Barber at Civil Ceremonies Limited - the market leaders in civil ceremonies in the UK . www.civilceremonies.co.uk
