Clergy or Celebrant
The role of Funeral Clergy or Funeral Celebrant is to officiate a funeral or thanksgiving memorial service. They will often meet with the family prior to the funeral service to learn about the person who has died and to offer support to the family. If the clergy or celebrant is helping with the eulogy, they will gather memories, anecdotes and defining moments in the loved one’s life to prepare the eulogy (for more information about how to write a eulogy, see Helpful Resources).
If your family is a member of a church it is likely that a pastor, minister or reverend from your church would officiate the funeral service. Alternatively, we are able to recommend a minister or reverend if required.
At Tuckers we also work closely with several funeral celebrants and can recommend someone to suit your requirements. Most celebrants are not professionally affiliated with a religious or spiritual group and they are trained to officiate a service that is personal while incorporating unique stories and experiences of your loved one. Celebrants are also able to provide religious ceremonies if requested.
