what people say about wendy's funeral ceremonies
seems odd describing a funeral as 'perfect' but that's exactly how we
would describe Dad's service. Thank you so much Wendy for making it so.
Your presence and advice before, during and after the ceremony gave us
the confidence we needed to celebrate Dad's life with dignity and joy -

She helped direct the proceedings of the funeral with skill and

send for Wendy." Knowing Wendy, it is easy to see why.
have known Wendy both personally and professionally now for many years,
her dedication to the profession of celebrancy is unrivalled as is her
knowledge and understanding of what people need at these important
times in their lives.
