Funeral Ceremony

Gold Coast Funeral Ceremonies

A Civil Funeral Ceremony is entirely about the person being farewelled. As there are no legal requirements to have a funeral, there is no set format for a civil funeral – but most people prefer a ceremony based on the traditional format of a funeral, including a eulogy, readings and music. ​

For me funerals are particularly personal, and I prepare my ceremonies with the full collaboration of the family, seeking input, and offering a guide from which ingredients of the ceremony can be selected. ​

Most funeral bookings come from Funeral Directors as part of their arangements, but direct contact with a Celebrant is OK.

With any of these ceremonies I offer five star service, assuring personal attention in preparation and presentation of the ceremony. ​A no-obligation initial meeting is welcome.

A Guide to the Ceremony will be provided.

Nick Erby was the Celebrant at the funeral of my mother Eleanor – and he was a wonderful choice. Nick talked with me, obtaining my mother’s history and then organised a complete ceremony for our approval. It was wonderful.

He was compassionate, sincere, sympathetic to those gathered and through his ability with words was able to create a ceremony that was a moving tribute to my mother. ​ Nick has so many resources that he was able to organise all the music as well as the ceremony components.

This was such a relief for us, ensuring that the ceremony was as we wished my mother’s farewell to be. I have no hesitation in recommending
Nick as a celebrant and I am sure anyone who chooses to use his services will be more than rewarded with his contribution to your event.
