Welcome to North Devon Civil Ceremonies

Welcome to my website, Sue Smith, Independent Civil Funeral Celebrant, operating primarily in North Devon, although I am happy to discuss requests from further afield.

I have successfully completed the Funeral Celebrant Diploma, the foremost qualification of it’s kind in the U.K. and have written and delivered over 150 ceremonies, many of which are requested from previous families and their friends.

I am a trustworthy and personable Civil Funeral Celebrant, offering a professional service working closely with families and loved ones, listening to their stories, their memories and their wishes for the ceremony, all with the sole purpose of creating a unique and dignified fitting farewell.

Whether you would like a traditional funeral service with hymns and prayers, or a more contemporary one with poetry, favourite music and family tributes, or a mixture of both, I will ensure that your wishes are fulfilled, creating and conducting the complete ceremony on the day.

If you wish, I can create a unique tribute for your loved one, to be used in a family led funeral service if this is your preference. This is a personal service that can be discussed as required.

You can either contact myself directly for help, advice and examples of previous funeral services, or request my services through your chosen Funeral Director.
