Clare Mellor
Funeral Celebrant in West Suffolk

Updates (Covid-19)

There are so many clichés and overworked adjectives to describe the past 2 years and now we begin 2022 with yet more hurdles. There is hope, despite the "light at the end of the tunnel" seeming very distant.

I have been uplifted by the sympathy, empathy, dignity and creativity demonstrated by all my professional colleagues and the families I have had the privilege to work with.

In my experience to-date, all the anxieties that families have had, leading up to the funeral itself, about it "not being right" or "not as they would have wished" have been allayed and the ritual has been more personal and intimate and meaningful than they could have imagined beforehand.
