What others have to say...
I can’t thank you enough for getting me and mum through the last few weeks. You are exceptional at what you do and we will always be grateful for how you helped us through the toughest time and gave Graham the send off he deserved.
We have had so many messages saying how beautiful and well put together the service was, and a few even asked if you knew him from before.
Thank you for being a friend to us too.
Thank you so much for the lovely service you put together. People said it was a perfect reflection of Peter's life and they wouldn't have changed one thing. Thank you also for helping us cope at such a difficult time. Several family members have asked for copies of the service so thank you very much.
CS. Welwyn Garden City
I just wanted to say how happy we all are that we chose you for Dad's service. We had so many positive comments about the service and you. You took so much time and care getting to know Dad through us and all the letters, cards and photos. You were so sensitive through every stage of the planning and in the way you carried out the service. Dad would have been so touched by the tributes and readings and you read my piece better than I could have done so I am very grateful to you for that :-).
There is not even one tiny piece of constructive criticism I can come up with for you! While it was the most painful day of my life, I wouldn't change a thing.
Just a quick note to say thanks for a wonderful service and reflection of Jeff. I can rest now he is ‘gone’.
You were an absolute joy to speak to and made a difficult conversation so easy.
Thank you for being lovely xxxx
We would like to extend heartfelt thanks for the service today.
It went really very well and we were very pleased with the way in which you handled the unpredictable element.
MM, Bury St Edmunds
I would like to extend my thanks on behalf of the family and members of the Cambridge Flying Group for delivering such a fitting life celebration service for our dear friend and brother Dennis.
Thank you, Jane, for the lovely service. Covid (!!!!) even meant that there were not enough pallbearers to carry him into the chapel but you somehow managed. Most people were too busy crying to notice. Your words were succinct and poignant which Jim would have appreciated. So many of his important people could not be there and I understand they were all in tears watching at home.
Such difficult times for everyone at the moment. Thank you again.
Ian, Ann & Julie
Just want to let you know how much Linda and I really appreciated how well mum’s service went last week. Everyone at the service felt it was moving and reflected her life thoroughly from beginning to end.
Your respectful and yet lighthearted address of her life was soothing and we left the service in a calmer frame of mind and joyful that we had known such a wonderful and loving person.
Thanks so much for today. It was bloody brilliant, my Dad would have loved it.
Thank you so much!
I just wanted to pass on our thanks from all the family for the lovely service that you gave Jack yesterday.
Everything went very smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for a better send off for him.
I just wanted to thank you for carrying out a beautiful celebration of mum’s life. To thank you for your help with each step of the preparation which was a great relief for me. It was also very moving to have her grandsons give their memories and tribute to her.
Thanks so much again Jane. Everyone thought you were amazing.
Thank you once again for the wonderful service you carried out for Jan on the 30th,
all those that attended were very impressed as was I, Claire, Matt and the Family.
I just wanted to thank you properly for the lovely service you delivered for mum last week.
We were very happy and thankful for your help
Mum and I would just like to thank you, for the support you have shown us over the last few weeks and for the lovely service you gave today for Joe.
As mum said earlier it has been a lovely day.
Many thanks for today, from my perspective the day went perfectly, hope from your side the same.
Many thanks again for all the arrangements just brilliant.
KM. The Shetlands
Thank you so much for the movies and photos - they are great.
Thanks again for all your help and guidance - so many said it was one of the best funerals they had been to!
Just a note to say a huge thank you for making mum’s service so special. The eulogy was portrayed in such an excellent way and you have a very nice voice to listen to! A lot of people commented on how lovely it was to hear about mum’s early life and our lives as children. You had incorporated all our wishes at this very emotional time.
Many thanks again and sending you our best wishes.
ML, Hemel Hempstead
I just wanted to send you a heartfelt thank you for all the kindness, patience, understanding and empathy you have given us these last couple of weeks.
Everyone felt yesterday went so well, Julian was given a loving, honest and affectionate send off, just as you promised. .... ‘it was beautiful,’
I noticed you won ‘most compassionate celebrant 2020’......congratulations, and I can’t think of a more deserved award!
We remain eternally grateful to you for your sheer skill & kindness, sensitivity & generosity of time. I've lost count of the compliments & positive feedback received from family and close friends.
Thank you for conducting Garry's service yesterday. Everyone said it was lovely and there have been a lot of comments from our many friends who watched online.
Thank you also for helping me to think about something that seemed unthinkable.
JG, Welwyn Garden City
Thank you so much for your support not only today but the build up to Dads funeral, it is greatly appreciated.
Everyone said the service was lovely and captured Dad/Grandad so well.
Thank you so much . You did us very proud. Thank you from all of our family. It was a lovely send off and I thank you for making that happen. You are a vey special person for the job you do.
Thanks again Jane,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your support from beginning to end with Dad's funeral process.
In a way I feel lucky that Covid meant we were forced to have such a close intimate goodbye. The personal touches that you suggested meant and helped so much, and I am so grateful for the way you considered the children and the suggestions you made to include them in the service.
So a huge thank you again. Your attention to detail and your consideration of every one of us meant that Dad had the perfect send off.
The celebrant Jane was particularly praised for her service and speaking Welsh for one of the prayers chosen. Which again was most appreciated by mothers family.
I was able after the service to thank Jane personally for all her kind work efforts. As learning Welsh is by no means a easy task.
TI, Brentwood via Coop WGC
What a wonderful service you delivered. It made saying goodbye so much easier. I have been to funerals where it was clear the celebrant hadn't had too much contact with the family. You spent so much time listening to us and asking the right questions which made it sound as if you actually knew Mum.
Just a quick message to say thank you for the service for Maggie.You did an amazing job in condensing the essence of her life and character into a meaningful farewell.
Thank you so much.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a beautiful service. You were amazing. It was emotional yet said everything about her.
I just wish to let you know how pleased we all were with the day.
We had many fears about the day but there was a beautiful calmness and I believe that we gave her a perfect if simple send off. She would have enjoyed your presentation.
I know you put a lot of effort into summarising her life, and I do think that the time spent talking to you was more beneficial for us than we at first realised.
Would just like to take a moment to express our gratitude on behalf of the three of us for all your help with this. You’ve been an absolute diamond in every aspect and I’m sure my sisters would echo those sentiments, you’ve made this such an easier process for us all and we can’t thank you enough
The first time I spoke to Jane I knew she was a very professional person and I had confidence in her
to lead me through the preparation of my Mum’s service. She listened to me, waited for my tears to
go, supported, and guided me in the weeks and days ahead.
Jane understood how I felt, I found her understanding and asking relevant questions about my Mum’s life from her early childhood to her twilight years. I could trust her to tell the life of a 100 year-old lady, Violet Collins, who lived an incredibly happy and lively life.
The Service was put together by Jane and I could not fault it. The way Jane told her life story brought Mum back to me.
J Beard, Nazeing
I just wanted to thank you again for conducting such a moving service for Mum on Wednesday. Everyone said afterwards that it was “just perfect” and I’m sure Mum would have approved as well.
RP, Goffs Oak
We all felt that dad’s life was portrayed beautifully and I would like to thank you for your part in helping us to achieve that.
We all want to thank you for a wonderful service. It was a good send off for Den.
What can I say? Thank you so much for such a lovely ceremony this morning.
I have been getting lots of messages saying it was just right, perfect in fact ......That is thanks to you.
You are certainly in the right job! It was lovely to meet you, even though you made me cry.
Thank you Jane
I really want to thank you again for yesterday's amazing tribute to my Mum. Speaking to my Dad that evening, he was saying how moved he was. He couldn't make eye contact with you in the service for fear of breaking down, but he was so touched and its really helped us both. It bought back so many happy memories and that's what we carry forward alongside her smile. You have a true gift and i hope you realise just how much of a healing impact you've had on our family. My Mum if she were with us would love to give her thanks too. So many of their friends loved hearing those stories and found it such an excellent and personal tribute. You took care of everything, thank you
SC, Bishops Stortford
Jane, just wanted to say a BIG thank you for such a wonderful service yesterday. You did our Mum proud.
Thank you for all your kindness and understanding. You made what I expected to be an unbearable day bearable. Once again a very big thank you.
The best funeral I can remember attending!
we just felt it was important to let you know what a great success the whole service and presentation of todays funeral was - being a great tribute to David being David as only he could be. He would have loved it! Nice to have part of my letter read out by the officiant, Jane, whose delivery was engaging but balanced.
I cannot begin to thank you enough for the truly perfect service for Dad, it couldn’t have been any better.
Seriously ! Thank you so much for today, we all did Dad proud
Just wanted to say a very big thank you for the beautiful service on Monday, you really summed Dad up well. Everyone commented on how lovely the service was. Apparently we did him proud, which for my mum’s sake I’m really chuffed with.
It’s been an absolute pleasure meeting and working with you.
I just want to say a big thank you for today. Everyone said how lovely the service was and the we got dad ‘down to a tee’. Many thanks
Thank you everything went very well you did a lovely job!.
A big thank you for making it just perfect. Anyone who didn’t know differently would have assumed that you knew Mum personally. You took the time to get to know her through the family and it is much appreciated.
People commented on how nice the service was, and I thought it went very well.
Many thanks for all your help and guidance over the past few weeks.
I wanted to say thank you for my Mum, 'Chris' wonderful service.
Megan at the Coop thought you would be the right choice & she was absolutely right.
You are a warm & wonderful person & that was evident from our first meeting with you.
Thank you once again for your empathy, warmth and kindness.
JH & family, Waltham Abbey
We are so grateful to you for the love, kindness and support you gave us before, during and after our Dad's service. Thank you
On behalf of my Mum, Ian and myself we just wanted to express our thanks for the wonderful service you gave at my dad’s funeral. Everyone we have spoken to has commented on how the words you wrote captured exactly how we all remember him.. it was very emotional and all put together perfectly.
Thank you so much for the professional way in which you organised Dad's service
Would like to say thank you for the lovely service you did for dad and you have been amazing and a great support x
Hi Jane , would like to thank you for the service yesterday , it was a lovely service and everybody commented on how June it was .

JC Great Yarmouth
I just wanted to express my sincere thanks for the service you gave for our Mum , I had read the draft and been very happy, but the way you expressed it was so beautiful and really took us on a journey and our life with her, everyone present appreciated how wonderful the service was.
TC & Family, Bishops Stortford
Thank you so much for all you did for supporting us all yesterday. The funeral went so smoothly and it was a
wonderful opportunity to reflect upon Jacks life.
The link was watched
by family and friends and we've had some lovely comments on the way you
led it so sensitively. I've had the nurses from his care home, Oakview Lodge contact me too. We were so pleased they were able to join us and
they have many happy memories of Jack and couldn't speak more highly of him.
So thank you, once again Jane
On behalf of my Mother and Sister as well as the wider family, I wanted to thank you for such a lovely smooth service today. It was an incredibly poignant hearing the words that we had previously read as you spoke, and they came over so well, it was beautiful.
The service even assisted a coming together of the two families for a brief moment of reflection and appreciation of the whole process, along with compliments for yourself and all professional parties involved. The courtesy and the dignity shown on the final journey was beautiful and a wonderful tribute to our late Step Father who we are sure would of been overwhelmingly happy with.
Our sincere thanks for everything you done to help this happen.
GA & Family
I just wanted to say, on behalf of all of us, a massive thank you for last Thursday. We all thought the service was perfect and the feedback has been so lovely, the the only thing missing was dad himself.. I'm sure he would of loved it.
Thank you again for all your support, time and effort.
May I on behalf of the family and myself, thank you for your support in delivering a beautiful and comforting service on Friday. My grandchildren were so interested in all that was disclosed about their grandfather which at our family Wake held at a local eaterie there were many questions and answers, it was so good and brought to an end a rather difficult day.
Thank you Jane.
We had some lovely comments about the service so thank you very much for pulling together all our snippets of information to make it memorable for us and all our relatives
Best wishes to you
KC, St Albans
Thank you for the excellent service. Many , indeed, most of our friends & family praised the content & delivery.
AMM, Welwyn Garden City
We cannot put into words how grateful we are for the incredible ceremony you crafted for us. Everyone said how beautiful it was, and how fantastic you were; there were plenty of tears and lots of laughs. We will be recommending you to anyone and everyone we can.
We think you are just brilliant and can't thank you enough for helping to make our ceremony the spectacularly magical moment it was. From the moment we met you, we knew you were the right celebrant for us - you even welcomed us into your home, and you just "got" us. You have captured our love perfectly.
We love you and THANK YOU!
Sam & Jodie, Bures
I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely service you put together for Carol last week. Jamie and I really appreciate all of your help and we were really pleased with how the service went. We also got a lot of feedback from the people who attended the funeral about how nice it was.

M. Cragg, Welwyn Garden City
Jane did a service for the internment of my husband's ashes with myself & family attending. She was very sympathetic to our needs as it was a very emotional day.
I can't praise Jane enough for the lovely service she did & made it very personal to us. She was very professional & I can highly recommend her as a Civil Celebrant.
B Reed, Welham Green
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for giving our dear friend Jay a terrific send off on Thursday, it was perfect xxx
Jane was extremely good and thank you for making a stressful situation so easy and calming for all our family. You were so supportive to all the family - young and old, especially those who contributed on the day. We are most thankful. Having done such a wonderful ceremony for my father we would like to book you for our forthcoming Vow Renewal Ceremony.
S. Cowley, Welwyn Garden
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the lovely service you organised today. Everyone said it was one of the best funerals they had ever attended. I loved everything ! Thank you
LC, Goffs Oak
Our friend had such a strength of character any ‘normal’ funeral would have fallen well short of how she and we would have wished to say goodbye.
Jane sensitively orchestrated a wonderful farewell located in the most glorious Dorset countryside, collating the memories of dear friends, providing the natural habitat that perfectly suited the person who had been such a force in our lives. Whether it be a funeral, a wedding, a partnership or a naming I have no doubts in recommending Jane as the celebrant.
A lovely colourful day [no black] and thank you for joining in, saying goodbye to our Auntie Dolly.
Your collaboration of the words we all gave you was superb.... and delivered with feeling, all the family said how lovely it was and relived all the memories, Dolly was a special lady and our family will miss her terribly.
We had a nice afternoon in Den's garden going over all the happier times and raised a glass[or two] to our Doll Doll.
Thank you once again,
with love n thanks xx
J. Pratchett, Southend
Paul, Tricia, and myself appreciate your kindness to us all at was a sad day but also a comforting day in a strange way. thank you so very much.
I apologise for delay in sending my thanks. much love, Edna
E. Lawrence, Cheshunt
I would just like to say how much I appreciated your support today. ...I need to thank you also for the beautiful event that you led today to say goodbye to Jean.
You had obviously done a lot of preparation for today and I know that many of the people attending remarked “what a lovely service that was”.
PW - Bishops Stortford
Thank you so much for yesterday, my Dad would have loved it. What you said about everyone was lovely and appreciated by all the family.
Clare, Welwyn Garden City
Thank you again for all your hard work, you really have done an amazing job capturing the essence of Dad.
Natalie, Welwyn Garden City
Thank you for all that you have done for me and my family over this difficult period, I really appreciate it.
I’ve always thought people who officiate at funerals are sad solemn people, but I’ve changed my mind, they are happy and positive people doing what I consider to be a sad job.
It must be nice to know that you have helped in whatever way to ease the pain and help with the healing processes.
Thank you again
Jane's approach is holistic with the client's and their family's well-being, central to all she does. That she is highly professional, experienced and efficient goes without saying. What makes Jane a special celebrant is her vibrant character, depth of compassion and the full and committed support she provides throughout the process.
During meetings she guided and helped everyone individually and as a family through what was for us a devastating and difficult time. The service she delivered was unique and beautiful. We couldn't have hoped for a more perfect celebration of the life of our lost loved one. As a large family, we're hopeful of having the opportunity to book Jane for a happier occasion such as a wedding and naming ceremony. Despite our event being the saddest of times, Jane ensured it also sparked joy, gratitude and humour which was everything we needed it to be.
We couldn't recommend Jane highly enough. Our experience was five stars on all points. However, in our opinion .... Five Stars are not enough.
I Wilson, Broxbourne
Thank you for the service today, many people complimented on it. We have had a great day, - emotional but very enjoyable too.
Very nice to have met you, it was a good to know you briefly.
Thanks again F x
It went really well, Jane Moseley was excellent. I like her sense of humour and she really understood us and my Dad.
Hi Jane , the service was absolutely perfect for my mum . Everyone was saying how lovely it was and how she would've loved it .
Thank you so much
The service was perfect and everyone said the same. You definitely captured Marian’s spirit and the family dynamics. If she’d met you she would have loved you too.
It would be nice to meet up as we all felt a bond with you.
Keep well and stay positive
Much love and best wishes
Claire & Gary, Broxbourne
Thank you for your celebration of Roger's life.
The ceremony was moving and personal, you captured the friend I knew; his interests, wit and humour, and also revealed previously unknown aspects of his life.
It was just right and brought back lots of memories of happy times - he would most definitely approve.
I and Roger's other friends appreciated the opportunity to contribute, what a lovely service it was, and how much it helped us to be reminded of who he was before becoming ill.
Thanks again for giving him a really good send off.
Iona, Welwyn Garden City
I can't thank you enough.
Thank you so much for the wonderful service and help.

Thank you so much for your advice and kind words.
Thank you again for today. It was the perfect way for everyone to say goodbye to her. You have found the job you were always meant to do.
Thanks for your kind words and yes the work colleagues who were there certainly did as you suggested. The celebration at the Comrades Club was excellent.
I thought your service was really good and thanks again for making it so easy for me to make a contribution
Thank you so much for the service today, it went really well and everyone loved it. It was just perfect, Thank you.
I just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for your part in the funeral yesterday.
Everyone felt that the service and the wake were in true Coyne family tradition. I really wanted Mum's funeral to reflect that of Dad's and I believe this was well and truly achieved.
Your kindness and understanding were much appreciated. Please accept my gratitude.
With kind regards,
Thank you so much for all your time and trouble in helping with the funeral. We don't know how we would have managed without you.
S Family, Bishops Stortford
Thank you so very much for the wonderful service you produced for mum!
In such sad circumstances a wonderful service.
Thank you very much for all your support and giving me the courage to get up there and do my dear mum letter!
Totally devastated, but her life continues in our memories.
Dad came home to us , surrounded with Family, he loved seeing the photos, he just thought we did mum proud with everything, couldn’t see a fault with any of it. We’re very pleased he feels that we’ve done a good job!
Thank you so very much again.
We’ll take on board about what you said about getting our lives on paper, more so to find out more about dads life and wishes, before it’s too late. We’d be more than happy to recommend you and certainly use you again.
Thank you so very much again.
I just wanted to let you know that your service for Nanny Jean was delightful. We all went away uplifted and happy about a life well lived rather than sad about a loss. We were amazed that you included every last bit of the information you gleaned last Sunday, you would make a fine reporter!
Thank you again for a well researched and creative service. It is something we will all remember
Best wishes to you
I just wanted to thank you for Thursday, it was perfect and a great comfort to us all.
Again many thanks
MS, Bishops Stortford
Good evening Jane,
I would just like to thank you for all the help and support that you gave to me, Peter and our families last week at Fred's funeral.
We felt that his funeral was all that we had envisaged and that Fred, had he ever admitted to the fact of the possibility of death, would have also been happy with the service and especially with the spoken words.
It was a pleasure to have met you.
The service was very moving and a fitting tribute to my Aunty Maggie.
I'm safely home now with large glass of white firmly in hand!
We thought everything else went really well and Dad would, I’m sure, have been touched by how personal it was.
Thanks for all your time and attention to detail.
Thanks again and very best wishes.
AL, Bishops Stortford
Just to say thanks for everything. I thought what you said on Friday was perfect.

SG, Bishops Stortford
Thank you so much for everything.

It was just perfect! She would have loved it too.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
SM, welwyn Garden City
The service today encapsulated every single aspect of Ron’s life that we wanted to show.
It was a funny, moving, heart-breaking service that ultimately concluded with our sharing every touching, human, and fun aspect of Ron’s life.
I was devastated and uplifted in turn, and have had so many comments how special his funeral was and how much it just summed him up. With deep thanks.
Thank you so much for making our day so incredible!
We can honestly say it was the best day of our lives and you made that happen! How cool is that?
Thank you for bringing us so much happiness and running the show so well.
Thanks for keeping us calm when things weren't going according to plan. And thanks for making everyone laugh and cry at the right moments!
We love you!

EC & Family, Bishops Stortford
We would like to thank you very much for deciphering our ramblings with such expertise and warmth.
You made the service just as we wanted and everyone felt it was the Don they knew.
It was absolutely delightful to meet with you on Saturday and to share all our memories of Ron with you. It felt like we were meeting a friend and we are all convinced that you are perfect to take his funeral service, and will do it so well.
Thank you for your suggestions to personalise the service.
A big thank you for your help, keeping us all on track, and being there with a cool head whilst we gathered ourselves.
We had a lovely meet-up at home and everyone really appreciated the service and felt it portrayed our dear Mum well.
Thank you so much for all of your help at probably the most difficult time of my life.
You have been a voice of comfort and wisdom that I needed to hear.
Thank you so much Jane - you made today such a special occasion - we’ve had so many wonderful comments, apparently one of the best funerals ours & Dads friends have been to. What a day xx
Thank you very much for delivering a lovely service for Mum today.
The way you in which you conducted the reading was perfect. You said things in a way that my Mum would have appreciated & probably would have brought a smile to her face. Once again thank you.
Please accept our deep appreciation for the tremendous effort you put into making dads day the way he would have wanted it, your contribution undoubtedly helped us to achieve a special celebration. Thank you.
I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for the lovely service that you gave for Ron today. Your words captured Ron’s personality beautifully, and you spoke so well, really conveying the heartfelt memories my family.
Funerals are always emotional and difficult but I really did enjoy this one and felt that it really was a celebration of Ron’s life. He would have been so happy with that sending off and I felt uplifted as I left the building. Thank you so much for helping make that happen.
Your role must be very challenging and I think you really do have a talent for connecting with people and understanding the essence of the loved one.
Heartfelt thanks and best wishes,
Thank you so much for giving us such a special day.
Firstly I would like to say what a lovely send off you helped us give our Joycie on Wednesday
It gave us so much comfort, love and even joy as we celebrated a life well lived
Thanks so much for looking after my Mum at this time for her, I know she has only kind words for you.
Thank you for all the work you put in to dad’s funeral and leading the ceremony on Saturday.
Many people commented on what a good farewell and celebration of life it was for dad. I think he would have been very pleased with the content and the event itself.
Mum was very much comforted by the ceremony and the words from both yourself and the family.
Once again thank you for all the work in sourcing music and for your guidance.
Thank you so much for the lovely service you did for Mum yesterday.
We think it all went really well, and we appreciate the work you did to make it as special and dignified as it could have possibly been.
Mum would have been very proud.

We would like to thank you for your help with Betty’s funeral.
We appreciated it very much and felt it was personal to us.
David & Susan,
Myself the girls and Dave would like to thank you for arranging, taking part and delivering a wonderful service for John.
Back at Hanbury Manor so many of the people said to myself and my family what a lovely and fitting tribute to John.
Thank you so much for today Jane. We couldn’t have asked for a better service. We all said how upbeat and cheery it was. It captured mum perfectly.

I just wanted to write and thank you for the service you gave for Auntie Pam on Friday at Parndon Wood. You truly captured her as a woman and were able to make us all smile as we said a hard last goodbye.
I cannot thank you enough for your hard work and compassion during this time. It amazes me how you managed to paint such a picture in the short time to had to speak to loved ones and friends.
Everyone said what a lovely service it was on Friday and how pleased she would have been that we all had happy memories to be left with.
With eternal gratitude and best wishes

I just wanted to day thank you again on behalf of the whole family for the lovely service yesterday. Despite the restrictions, it went really well and Sue and I felt that the fact that only close family were there actually made it somehow more intimate and precious.
We would like to say thank you so very much for the service that you gave for Dad today.
Everyone said what a lovely speaker you are and a lovely presentation that you gave.
I have had a few emails already saying how much people enjoyed the personal and professional service via the Webcast.
Once again, thank you!
Dave,Linda,Fern and Michael - Broxbourne
Jane , thank you for a lovely service everyone thought it was a great tribute to Dad and they all said we done him proud thanks to you. You don’t have the sort of job where people would say “hope to see you again soon “ but I do wish you all the best for the future and stay safe.
Thank you for a marvellous celebration of my fathers life. The complete service went so well. You went into such detail and you were just incredible. I’m very impressed with you altogether. The expertise was divine. I felt good going up though visibly moved, it was good to play a part in a stunning send off for my late beloved Dad.
Everyone was appreciative of how much work had gone into the write up, the music and yet how smoothly it went down.
Thank you once again for everything that you did at the service on Monday - it was the perfect send off for mum, you even managed to order the sunshine.
The Memorial copy of the service is a lovely keepsake of mum's life, including things that I never knew about her, particularly from her early years
Thank you so much for yesterday, without your help I think we would of struggled.
You are a true professional
who genuinely cares about people.
It was an excellent service, I think Dad would have approved.
NW, Bishops Stortford
Just wanted to thank you for beautiful service you gave my dad, everyone who was there have said lovely it was and all the people who saw the WebCast of funeral said what wonderful job you did and I would like to thank you on behalf of the rest of my family for making whole day bearable
With much respect I thank you from the bottom of my heart
Jane would just like to thank you so much for what you have done for me.I think your words and the relaxed atmosphere helped us all. I am happy that we gave dad a send off which was fitting, not loud just nice and calm which I think was a testament to you , and I appreciate it.Thank you again.
Jane, Thank you again for the lovely way you put my family tree together. It was heart rending at times but it has put my mind at rest and from here there is only one way to go. FORWARD.
JH, Waltham Abbey
Just wanted to say thank you again for providing such a lovely service on Monday. The whole family were so pleased with how it went.
I want to thank you for the way that you conducted my brother’s funeral last Monday. You set the tone exactly how we wanted it - intimate and down to earth.
It felt more like a private party or get together than a funeral.
Take Care and God Bless
Just to say a personal thank you for being the celebrant at Jane's funeral and helping us organise and order it all.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the service on Tuesday.
Afterwards everyone was saying how ‘good’ and ‘cheerful’ the ceremony was for a funeral !!
We shall be leaving a review on your website over the next few days but the best comment I had was when somebody said to me, Doreen would have loved to been there for it, how nice is that !!!!!
Thank you so much for a perfect service for mum on Friday. Dad, Andrew and I cannot thank you enough for the time you spent with us and for the amazing tribute you drew from that, especially with how ill you were last week.
Lots of people commented on how you captured mum and how personal the service was, a number saying it was the loveliest they had been to.
Your support through a very difficult time and especially on Friday meant so much and we will always be grateful.
Thank you again.
KD & Family
The celebration of Martin's life was such a special and fitting occasion and his friends and colleagues found it both moving and humorous.
Thanks very much for yesterday's ceremony (and for all your help and support over the last few weeks). We really appreciate it.
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done for not just me but my dad, my uncle and the rest of the family - my nan would have been over whelmed with your kind words.
It was no doubt not the easiest of eulogy’s to write, not only with the current situation with the virus and not bering able to meet with us, but also using so many memories from different family members.
On behalf of myself and my family we all thank you so much.
HL, Bishops Stortford
Please accept our thanks for the wonderful ceremony that you conducted on Thursday 30th July for Michael Cole. All our family and friends have said it was the best send off Michael could have had.
On behalf of myself and the girls please accept our heartfelt thanks.
LC & Family, Broxbourne
Just wanted to say thanks again for a beautiful tribute and service
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the service yesterday, you did a really good job. I have to admit I was not looking forward to the day for all sorts of reasons but I felt it was a lovely service in the end and that was down to all the hard work you put in.
I wanted to thank you for the service today. There were many moving parts, it all went very well in the end.
Thank you for allowing me the space to play a part in your service.
The whole family was pleased with your tribute to Jean and I would like to thank you again for giving such a balanced and positive speech.
Just wanted to say thank you for your kind assistance during the arrangement of Rose’s funeral and your kind words of service on the day which did Rose proud
Jane was the celebrant for my mums funeral! She is an exceptional lady and excellent at her job. She captured mum exactly how she was and totally understood how we were describing her. She is so personable and I would highly recommend Jane!
Thank you for an amazing job on a sad day! Xxx

I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for last Monday.
The online tribute was a hit and the service was excellent – really captured the essence of my Dad.
I would just like to thank you for the service you performed for my mum on Tuesday.
It wasn't the send off I would have liked her to have but considering the circumstances, what you put together and the way you presented it was perfect. Summed Mum up and our families feelings for her to a tee.
It couldn't have been any better but there would have been lots more people there to say goodbye.
GO, Welwyn Garden City
Thank you for providing such a beautiful service for my dad, it was so personal and peaceful.
It has been a pleasure being with you and chatting about my sister Jan. Jan’s service was beautiful, much of it because of your gentle sincere words in conducting it. All who attended it thought the same, many thanks Jane
I just wanted to thank you for carrying out a beautiful celebration of mum’s life. To thank you for your help with each step of the preparation which was a great relief for me. It was also very moving to have her grandsons give their memories and tribute to her.
And the visual display gave everyone who attended fond memories of their time spent with mum.
Hopefully this will help everyone to heal and look back on her with fond memories of the character she was.
"Jane was the consummate professional throughout the wedding planning process and during the wedding day itself. She spoke individually and collectively to the bride and groom in advance of the day in order to find the correct balance and atmosphere for the wedding ceremony. Her manner was warm throughout and yet she maintained a professional demeanour which reflected the serious commitment being made.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Jane as a celebrant. She's very very good!"
Julie, Mother of the Bride, Suffolk
“Our friend had been such a huge character for so long, that anything mainstream, normal or sad would just not be appropriate at her funeral. The most amazing venue was chosen and Jane led us through the proceedings. Jane managed to encapsulate the spirit of our dear friend into a solemn, uplifting and sometimes funny celebration of our friend’s life.
I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again for any of the key celebrations in my life. I’d also strongly recommend her to anyone needing a celebrant who is both personal and professional.
Thanks so much Jane."
David White, Birmingham
“Jane displayed many excellent qualities throughout the time she spent with us.
She was supportive and sympathetic to everyone’s needs and emotions. As a family we would highly recommend Jane's services as a Civil Celebrant and have every confidence in her professionalism, empathy and ability to lead a service that is so personal.”
Sanne Burgon, St Albans
Thank you so much for yesterday. Millie's ceremony was very good and we all really enjoyed it. Glad you like the jasmine.
K. Sinnot, Welwyn Garden City
“Many thanks ... for delivering a wonderful service on Friday. Everyone we spoke with throughout the day was in agreement that the service captured our Mum perfectly, and the upbeat nature of the service carried on through to the wake, all of which helped to provide a very fitting send off for our Mum"
A.K Bik-Elliott, Hertford
I’ve had so much feedback from people saying how amazing you were and how it was very much Mike style. I can’t thank you enough for your hard work. It was incredible !!
