When you contact us about a funeral service, we will find out from you as much information as possible about the person who’s died. This is so we can make sure we find the most suitable celebrant to take their funeral service.
You’ll receive a condolence card from us, introducing the Good Funeral Company celebrant who will take the funeral service. Your celebrant will also contact the funeral director so they are aware of all the funeral details.
Your Good Funeral Company funeral celebrant will get in touch with you to find out where and when is the best time to visit you to discuss the funeral service. We can visit you in your home, at the funeral directors or in a church in the Diocese of Liverpool – wherever you feel most comfortable discussing the details of the funeral service.
When we visit you, we’ll listen to you so we can understand how we can create a funeral service which recognises the uniqueness of your loved one’s life. We’ll talk about the type of readings, music and tributes you feel are fitting to you and your loved one. From this, we’ll craft a bespoke service to help you grieve, celebrate and give thanks for their life and say farewell to your loved one.
During the visit, you’ll receive a prayer card and a candle holder. We’ll share a quiet moment of thanksgiving for your loved one.
If you’d like a service of blessing and anointing at the Chapel of Rest or in your home, please let us know.
We’ll be at the funeral venue waiting to meet you, making sure the service goes as planned. If you want us to, we can join you at the wake after the funeral service.
Your Good Funeral Company funeral celebrant will make sure that they dress appropriately for your funeral service. They can wear robes if that’s what is fitting for the service you’ve agreed with your celebrant.
After the service, we’ll be in touch to see how you are. You’ll also be invited to an annual memorial service at Liverpool Cathedral to remember your loved one.
