Finding the right Celebrant
When a loved one passes away, it can be extremely tempting to contact your nearest funeral director and have them take care of almost everything. From obituary notices, to the flowers, the funeral celebrant, the venue, and burial or cremation arrangements. However, it can be far better to do some of these things yourself. One of the ways you can ensure you give your loved one the send-off they deserve is to choose your own funeral celebrant to deliver the ceremony.
Where to look
Finding a celebrant may sound like a very time-consuming task, but it needn’t be… Here are two very simple ways to find a funeral celebrant.
Your local funeral director
The first step Twilight Group recommends is contacting some local funeral directors and asking for their recommended celebrants.
Prior to making your decision, make sure that you meet with a few celebrants. This gives you a chance to identify which celebrant will be best for your loved one’s funeral.

Online Celebrant Directories
Thanks to the internet, it has never been quicker or easier to find funeral celebrants in your area. There are many different online directories to choose from.
These directories usually include a ‘personal profile’ which allows you to learn more about them, what they specialise in, do they only do religious ceremonies? etc.
