A while back I blogged about celebrants. The essence of my argument was that people do not get to choose their celebrant from the range available locally because funeral directors, who like to hold all service providers in their thrall, do not offer them a selection.
Very soon they’ll have no choice. There’s now an excellent website which enables people to type in their postcode and instantly survey all the celebrants in their area.
Funeral directors: sit up and take notice, please! And hospices and bereavement officers!
If you are looking for a celebrant, have a look. The website also describes the various organisations which train celebrants.
