CLAIRE

Claire
I’m a Civil Celebrant based in Staffordshire and have lived here for the last 27 years. I live with my husband David and two children in the county town of Stafford.

I have trained to the highest standard, and hold the National NOCN Level 3 Diploma (RQF) in Funeral Celebrancy and a member of the Institute of Civil Funerals.

Prior to becoming a Civil Celebrant, I worked for Staffordshire County Council as a Senior Customer Service Adviser and further progressed to working as a trained Registrar in births, deaths and marriages.

I have had the pleasure of meeting many different families, completed many registrations and conducted various ceremonies during this time.

I gained a wealth of experience and knowledge during my career as a Registrar, and also had the opportunity to work directly with the South Staffordshire Coroner dealing with bereaved families in very difficult circumstances. 

I was inspired to pursue this career through my knowledge gained as a Registrar and through my love of working with people. 

My own personal experiences of losing family and friends along the way has further inspired me in my pursuit of providing a personal, respectful and dignified service and fully embracing the individuality and wishes of loved ones, their families and friends.

FUNERALSERVICES

Not everyone wants the same type of funeral and for me a funeral is about having the freedom to choose. 

It should be personal and heart felt and driven by the wishes, beliefs and values of the person who has died and their family, not by the beliefs or ideologies of anyone else. 

Religious, non-religious or elements of both, poems, readings, rituals, it is up to you.

Each ceremony will be individually written. It will capture the very essence of the person and tell the story of the life that has been lived. 
Family and friends will be involved throughout and together we will structure a tribute to remember your loved one by. 

Once we have spoken about your wishes and the ceremony has been written, I will send you a copy of the script for you to approve. You can make as many changes as you need until you are completely comfortable with the content of the ceremony. 

After the funeral, I will provide you with a full ceremony script for your family to keep.
