Peter Ryder Kent based, but offers UK and Worldwide coverage

I am an ordained minister of the church and have a doctorate in Divinity.

I offer semi-religious and non-religious funeral ceremonies.

I am a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants and have been professionally trained by the UK College of Celebrancy.

I am also a member of the Fellowship of Independent Celebrants and a supporter of the Natural Death Society.

Each funeral ceremony will be conducted to your wishes, which will make the ceremony very personal and unique and can include a hymn, song, some poetry or music.

I encourage active participation in the ceremony by members of the family which can include tributes, readings, or live music.

I will visit you, if at all possible, prior to the funeral, to discuss with you what you would like to include in the ceremony.

I try to lead a ceremony which reflects the style, personality, interests and hobbies of your loved one.

I will offer you suggestions and guidance, as required.


I offer a Worldwide coverage. The normal fee is £190, but subject to location etc.
I am happy to travel to any location in the world to assist families, as required.
