James Hewison

My previous professional life has been spent in the funeral profession – starting by learning the basics and finishing as one of six Area Managers for the second largest private funeral organisation in England, before becoming a Celebrant three years ago.  Since then I have taken several hundred ceremonies. My detailed knowledge and experience of funerals enables me to make sure that your service is exactly in accordance with your needs and wishes

My personal background and interests in different faiths, and a lifelong participation in choral music at the highest level, combined with a lifelong passion for literature and poetry give me an ability to suggest ceremonial content that will enhance your service and make it a fitting celebration of a life or of an event.



My aim is always the celebration of life – whether that life is just beginning, encountering one of life’s landmarks, or is at its end. Where inevitable sadness exists it can always be tempered with love, compassion and happy memories.

My professional commitment to professionals and clients is that I will:-

  1. Confirm straight away whether I am available, and once booked will honour that booking
  2. Make contact with the client as soon as I have instructions
  3. Meet the client as soon as they wish
  4. For funeral and celebration of life services I will provide a draft script by email for approval within 48 hours of meeting unless otherwise requested or agreed, and will liaise directly with your funeral director for Order of Service details, music choices and ceremonial details

Each service is individually composed and can contain whatever the client wishes – there’s nothing you must have and nothing you can’t have, so long as it’s legal and practicable!


I Really Love…

Individually crafted ceremonies to celebrate the events along life’s path, and make them special to you.
