For Funeral Directors

Rely on a fully accredited celebrant

If your clients ask for a celebrant recommendation, it’s natural that you’ll want to know a bit more about them. Here, you’ll find more details on our approach and our accreditations.

Springwood Ceremonies works with Funeral Directors to host ceremonies that their clients really want. Our services are flexible so people can include personal preferences as well as religious elements, like a favourite hymn or a prayer.

We also provide the link between the family and the Funeral Director to help ensure everything goes smoothly.

Springwood Ceremonies is led by Alison Carter who is training to be a Green Fuse Accredited Celebrant with a Funeral Celebrant Level 3 Diploma. The Diploma involved 300 hours of extensive training over a course of six months. Alison also carries professional indemnity insurance and Green Fuse Guild membership.
