Sharing Ideas



One of the great benefits of being trained and accredited by the British Humanist Association is that there are other celebrants around to talk through any problems. We share suitable readings with each other, and can help out if someone falls ill.


I’m especially lucky that there are three other BHA celebrants in the South Manchester area, Sian Griffiths, Duncan Battman and Mike Wolfe. We make a great team!

Further afield, there are Mike and Shirley George in Glossop, Eddie Joyce in Blackburn, Carole Truman in Bolton, Jan Ferguson in Nantwich, Marge Rose in Macclesfield, and David Seddon in High Peak. All are part of the Greater Manchester network of celebrants and all have supported me in my development as a funeral celebrant. I can recommend each one of them whole heartedly.


If the funeral of your loved one is being taken by a BHA trained celebrant you are in safe hands. Find out more about any of these celebrants at
