Christina May Celebrant - Hobart Funeral Celebrant


A funeral is an emotional and poignant event and as a funeral celebrant my role is to assist in creating a celebration of life fitting of the person being farewelled.

I understand that all funeral services should, and will differ, in order to capture the unique nature and influence that the deceased person has had on the lives of those around them.

It is my honour to be given the opportunity to celebrate this life, and to truly portray the character of someone who has been so loved, in so many differing ways, by those left behind.

My aim is to present the real-life story, which is true to the character and personal qualities of your loved one.  The service will not simply be a chronological series of events, but a story told with feeling, compassion, sensitivity and most of all with love.

Scattering of Ashes Ceremonies

Scattering of the Ashes is often a private ceremony conducted in a significant place when the time feels right for those left behind.

I can conduct a ceremony that is as informal or formal as you like and provide a send off for your loved one that is compassionate, sensitive and reflective of their wishes.
