Richard Honeysett has been practising as a celebrant since 2010. His lucky break came in his first conversation with a funeral director who recommended he read the Good Funeral Guide blog – because that was where it was all happening. He has never looked back, becoming one of the two founding directors of the Good Funeral Guide Community Interest Company.

Charles Cowling
Founder 

 

The one and only Charles Cowling has stepped gracefully into the background after creating and singlehandedly curating the Good Funeral Guide for over a decade. He continues to be a staunch supporter and ally of the current directors, and the Board is grateful to know that his wisdom, counsel and advice is just a phone call away, and his friendship is ongoing.

Thanks to Icons8 for the icons.
