Steve Emmett North and East Yorkshire, Postcodes of YO, HG, HU, will travel further for additional cost

I am a humanist funeral celebrant working primarily in North and East Yorkshire. I am trained, accredited and insured by the British Humanist Association to work as a professional celebrant. I will work with you and your funeral director to create a personalised ceremony, an event that will be a fitting tribute to your loved one and a lasting memory. Many people still believe that you must have a priest or some other minister to conduct a funeral. This is not the case – in fact, there are few regulations concerning funerals. So, people who have lived without religion, whether agnostic or fervent atheist, can have a funeral completely free of god, prayers and hymns.

The ceremony I create will celebrate the life of the deceased. We will remember his or her achievements, look at the serious and lighter events, hear favourite prose or poetry, and listen to much-loved music.

Areas covered: North and East Yorkshire, Postcodes of YO, HG, HU

Affiliation organisation: British Humanist Association (BHA)

Fee: £165. This includes 20 miles of travelling. Travel above that charged at 45p/mile with some discretion.
