Clergy or Celebrant

Dignity Funeral Services can recommend a funeral celebrant or is happy to contact a member of the clergy to lead the service.

Funeral celebrants can provide a service that is appropriate to the needs and cultural beliefs of the family. We are willing to recommend someone we feel is suitable for you.

If you are wishing to use a celebrant, you may find it helpful to meet with them before the person has died, if possible. In this way the celebrant has an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the person’s preferences in regard to the funeral service.

If you are a member of a religious denomination, your priest or minister is likely be the obvious person to conduct the funeral service. You may wish to inform the priest or minister that a death has occurred. The funeral director usually makes contact with them to confirm the date and time of the funeral and maintains contact with them leading up to the funeral.
