PAUL PAYNE

I live in Coventry with my wife and son. I am a trained teacher and designer who has also spent many years in business and am Church Warden at my local parish church. I am now enjoying using my varied skills and talents to help families give their loved one the best possible send off.

CHOOSE PAUL…

My aim is to enable families and friends to create the right ceremony to celebrate the life of a loved one who has died, whatever the circumstances.

Saying farewell to someone close is probably one of the biggest challenges we can face in life. It will be an intensely personal personal experience for you and your family. The funeral is a hugely important first step in your grief journey.

My role as an independent and professionally trained Funeral Celebrant is to listen to your memories, your hurts and your grief, before putting together and leading a funeral ceremony to honour and celebrate the life of your loved one. I will reflect your wishes and give voice to the memories and needs of family and friends at this uniquely difficult time.

The ceremony itself can have some religious content, or none at all. I will meet with you to discuss the ceremony in detail, provide guidance on any readings, poems, music or songs you might wish to include. I can write a fitting tribute based on what you share with me, if you require it.

We will discuss family or friends you might want to speak in different parts of the ceremony; or I can lead the whole way through. We will also discuss what you want to say to make it a personal and memorable occasion for family and friends.

I will prepare a draft version of the service words for you to read through and make any alterations that you wish, so you know what to expect on the day.

I will lead the ceremony and assist anyone else who you have asked to speak. Together we will ensure a fitting celebration of the life of your loved one

 

I Really Love…

…being inclusive and open-minded. My ceremony style is fairly traditional with gentle humour, and tailored to suit your expectations. I believe in taking time to listen and understand what kind of ceremony you will feel most satisfied with, and then to come up with helpful ideas and suggestions. Above all, I will work in collaboration with you.
