Tamara Burgess - South London, South East England and East Anglia

I believe that this is the last and most important gift we can give someone. It should be thoughtful, beautiful and unique; it should reflect your loved one’s life and be a gift to those attending that starts the journey of grieving and letting go, and moving forward without them; it should also be real and reflect them -warts and all!

Did you know that you don’t have to have a funeral in a 30 minute time slot at the local crematorium, church or cemetery? We can create an “alternative” funeral in a favourite place. This is what is often known as a Celebration of Life and it gives you so much more choice as you come to say goodbye.

Here’s a few words from Barbara – “I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you for the beautiful service and eulogy you did for XX. Everyone said how much they enjoyed it, and we were left feeling more uplifted and comforted than sad or depressed!”

“Your warmth and personal touch lifted what could have been a very painful time into something far more positive and hopeful; and I am very grateful for all your help and guidance.

I am an experienced and professionally trained Funeral Celebrant based in South London (Lewisham, Camberwell, Dulwich, Beckenham), South East England and East Anglia. I am happy to travel if necessary. Call me for a chat and let’s see if I can help you.
