Angela Maughan - Perthshire, Dundee, Angus and Fife

Death is a certainty for us all but it remains a difficult subject for us to talk about. Losing someone can be extremely difficult and it can create uncertainty. A good funeral gives thanks and celebrates the life lost, whether their time on earth was short or long.

I have many resources that I have collected over ten years that I can share with you, poems, readings, prayers and music.

There is no right or wrong with a funeral, it has to be right for you and for your loved one.

The ceremony can be a traditional format, or we can create a celebration of life in a venue of your choosing. As a co-founder and Trustee of Coffin Club Caledonia, a member of the Daisy Chain for the Charity Pushing up the Daisies I am passionate about supporting families with decisions that are right for them.

The words that are spoken in the ceremony are the words spoken by you all, familiar sayings and terms of endearment. I am happy to include your beliefs and values, familiar stories and descriptions of the person who has passed. I am happy to include stories and humour if that is appropriate for you and also to share hopes and dreams especially if it is the service for a young person.

The service is all about the person, sharing the essence of them, I am more than happy to support individuals if they wish to talk at the service or write the eulogy.

My job is to write and officiate a very personal funeral ceremony for families who would like a personal, real life and individually written ceremony for their loved one.

Every single one of us is different, and I write my ceremonies that way – I will always try to make their day as unique as possible using whatever aspects of a person’s life you feel are appropriate to include.

Sometimes my work involves negotiating some very difficult and challenging circumstances that families have encountered. From the end of a natural life to difficult and tragic circumstances. A person’s choice to die by suicide can be difficult for those left behind. Everything is confidential and with my background in personal therapy, you’re in very capable and competent hands.

Please feel free to get in touch with me, to see if I am the right person for you and your family.
