Hello #LGBTQ+ community we hope you are well and staying safe! At Pink Pound we’ve been working very closely with Andrew Bulman Civil Funeral Celebrant to help you create that unique ceremony for your loved ones. Andrew has been working in the industry for years and now he wants to offer his fabulous Funeral Celebrant services to everyone including our Pink Pound LGBTQ community.
Andrew is a very caring professional and has great love and passion when working with our community. He is a proud supporter and volunteer of equality. Read on further for more information on how he can help you with your funeral arrangements.
Andrew is also listed on our Pink Approved Partners section.
Did you know that a funeral does not have to be conducted by a religious minister?
Many people these days prefer to make use of a celebrant to deliver their funeral ceremony especially when the loved one held no strong religious beliefs.
Andrew will ensure that the funeral ceremony is properly constructed and delivered, with a formal committal of the coffin; and like a Humanist Celebrant he can make the ceremony completely non-religious if that is your wish.
However, as a Civil Funeral Celebrant he can also include hymns and prayers in the ceremony and any other religious element chosen by you. This is something a Humanist Celebrant will not do.
His only concern is to help you create the funeral you want.
There is no law governing the location and content of a funeral ceremony. The law only requires you to dispose of the body appropriately.
So if you want your loved one’s funeral ceremony in a village hall that’s fine. If you want it in your front room, that’s also fine. If you want to write messages on the coffin, light candles, tell jokes or sing songs that is all just fine. It’s entirely up to you.
The only restriction you may find is with the length of time available if you opt to have the ceremony at a crematorium.
He can advise you on all of these matters and help you put together the funeral ceremony you want.
ABOUT ANDREW ( In his own words)
My name is Andrew Bulman and I am a Civil Funeral Celebrant.
I help bereaved families create unique semi-religious or non-religious funeral ceremonies for their loved ones and officiate at the cremation or the burial to ensure the family’s wishes are carried out.
I also undertake ashes and memorial ceremonies, bespoke eulogy writing and funeral ceremony pre-planning.
I specialise in working with the families of older loved ones.
I charge £200 for preparing and officiating at a funeral which includes all expenses.
I work across the West Midlands, as well as Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.
I hold the NOCN Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy which means I have been trained to the highest standard currently available.
I hope you find this blog helpful and I look forward to hearing from you soon with regard to how I can help you create that special funeral for your loved one.
Don’t forget to mention Pink Pound at time of booking! Andrew is looking forward to meeting you!
