Hannah Osmond - Balcombe West Sussex
Through a sensitive and respectful approach I create beautiful and personal funeral services, memorials and celebration of life ceremonies. Being fully independent, I will work closely with you to develop a fitting and poignant tribute to your loved one - which may, or may not, include religious or spiritual elements, as you wish.

With excellent attention to detail and clear and open communication, I will help you navigate one of the trickiest moments during your lifetime.

As a safe and trusted pair of hands, I have experience in cremations, burials (including natural burials) ashes scatterings and interments; as well as providing farewell services in non-traditional settings such as private homes, gardens, village halls, the pub (!) etc.  
I am based in Balcombe, in West Sussex, and work locally as well as farther afield. I am always happy to share advice and talk through ideas at no cost to you, so do get in touch, if you think I may be able to help. Please also contact me if you would like a copy of my digital brochure. 
In my spare time I enjoy time with my 6-year old son, Reuben, walking my dogs and being told what to do by my two cats! I'm a huge lover of the outdoors, yoga, podcasts, chocolate and gardening. 
"I must thank you for your kindness and professionalism in holding the spce and making it a positive celebreation of my husband's life.  I was so glad that you were recommended to me and you were just the right person for the occasion."
(V. Sanderson. July 2019)

“I do not even know how to begin to thank you for giving so much of yourself to us yesterday. Every single person was blown away by you, your dedication and your beautiful essence.”
(N. Duncan : Jan 2019)
