Welcome to Farewells. During these difficult times, we understand the need for information and understanding. We are here to help you through this tough journey. Please do feel free to contact us anytime.
Farewells endeavours to provide relevant information and reassurance to those who have recently lost a loved one or those seeking guidance regarding a ceremony and/or memorial tribute.
Not only can we create meaningful and bespoke ceremonies but we will also assist you with music choices and music ordering, orders of service and many other administrative areas.
Born and raised in Yorkshire, Victoria has lived all over the world which encapsulates an honest outlook on life. As a qualified Funeral Director, Victoria has supported a wide range of families struggling to come to terms with loss and embraces the wonder of life through memories, stories and the light that the departed have left shining.
Victoria has helped many individuals and families through exceptionally difficult and dark times surrounding the passing of a loved one.
Having worked in the funeral industry for several years and having overseen many different funerals, I endeavour to help create a wonderfully inspiring and bespoke ceremony which is delivered with a professional, articulate and caring manner.
A funeral celebrant is the person who officiates at the ceremony. This ceremony can be held at either a crematorium, a chapel, a venue of your choice or at the graveside.
A celebrant works with you, creating the ceremony that you would like for your loved one.
Often people have firm ideas about what they would or would not like. The celebrant will help to guide you and will explain what is going to happen on the day itself. Many people have little experience when it comes to organising a funeral for a friend or loved one. Don’t worry if you don’t know where to start, the celebrant you choose will be there to support you every step of the way.
Thank you for your faultless performance and kind words about my father JS last Friday, S
Hi Victoria, Can I thank you for the fantastic send off you have given my brother today. You are a true professional the way you spoke about B as if you were part of his life. Loved every bit of it. God bless you and thanks again, R
Dear Victoria, Thank you so very much for helping us with our funeral service for R. You spoke so beautifully about him on our behalf; a difficult task when you had never met him in such a sensitive way. We felt very fortunate to have you by our side and supporting us throughout the service. If only all the other tasks we have to complete now were so efficient and considerate. Again, thank you so very much, A & A
