What is a Funeral Celebrant?

What is a Funeral Celebrant?

A funeral celebrant is an individual trained to provide funerals for families who wish to have unique, personalized and individual service.  They conduct celebrations of life that are typically non denominational.

This practice is widely used throughout the world.  In some countries, civil celebrants are licensed positions in local government and they perform over 50% of both funerals and weddings.

Today, families bring new values, preferences, opinions and creativity that are changing the world of funeral service.  A funeral celebrant offers personalized funeral services, tributes and grave-side memorials.  They meet with the family to work together in designing a service that appropriately reflects the life and character of their loved one.

At Bay Gardens Funeral Home, we are very proud to have a licensed funeral director and certified funeral celebrant as part of our team.  Lindsay Jones, creates unique and personalized funeral celebrations for families who are looking for a creative alternative.
