Staffordshire Funeral & Civil Celebrant
Hello my name is Steve Brown.
When I was first contemplating becoming a Celebrant, I gave some deep thought to what it would mean to me and what I could give to my families.
First and foremost, I understood that having lost loved ones myself that I offer true and unconditional empathy and understanding to my families.
The other equally important consideration was to how I could receive the best possible training to achieve this aim and provide the absolute best and most meaningful services for my families and do everything I can at the most difficult of times to provide my total support and help them through the pain and tears.
You will find someone in me who is totally non-judgemental. I have performed a huge number of funerals for people of faith and no faith and those in-between and others whose beliefs are alternative. I have performed funerals for Christians, Atheists, Agnostics and even Wiccans and Pagans.
My only desire is that we have one chance to say our goodbyes to your loved ones and it must be exactly whatever you or they desired. That is my sole concern.
It may come as a surprise to many that you do not have to be trained to become a Celebrant.
My view is that a Funeral is such an important time in a family’s life together why trust it to an amateur?
I chose to train with the best Celebrants organisation, The UK Society of Celebrants and elected to travel to their head office to receive first class face to face residential tuition from their CEO and lead tutor.
Prior to training as a Celebrant, I had a long as successful industrial career in management which involved client care and so have a full understanding of what it takes to always go that extra mile and the need for the very best training to become the very best.
When you choose to appoint me as your Celebrant you will find a mature empathetic friend. Someone who has that life experience to really understand your pain and grief, someone who really does understand what you are going through.
You will find someone who is there for you at any time when you need help and advice or even just a chat when you need someone to lean on and a hand to hold.
Give me a call for a free informal initial chat.
A note from a client
Just to say a huge ‘thank you’ for all you did for mum’s funeral – Eva Johnson, Mon 30th April.
Everyone remarked about the lovely service and your readings and what could have been a really bad day, turned out to be rather beautiful and one that will hold good memories.
I hope that you had a great holiday in Corfu and that you now have the new addition to your family! Because you went the extra mile literally – to collect my flowers, I’d like to treat the puppy with something of your choice.
So thank you once again
With all good wishes
