  • I am a retired GP, and during my career I had a particular interest in terminal care and dealing with death and bereavement.  Together with experience of death and funerals among my close family, this gave me the motivation to seek training as a funeral celebrant with Green Fuse.  I completed my training in 2013 and I have so far (at the start of 2017) conducted about fifty funerals.  I work mainly in south-west Cornwall, around Helston, Falmouth and the Lizard, but will consider working further afield in special circumstances.

    I personally have no religious convictions, but I am happy to incorporate spiritual elements into ceremonies, in accordance with the family’s wishes and beliefs.  I particularly welcome the chance to plan funerals in advance with those who know they are approaching death.  Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to discuss what I can offer, with of course no obligation.
