Find an IoCF Celebrant

When you choose a funeral celebrant who is a member of the IoCF, you are choosing someone who will help you create the most beautiful ceremony possible for the person you have lost.

Why choose an IoCF celebrant? 

Each of our members:

  • understands that the funeral is your final gift to your loved one - a special day to remember and mourn;
  • will work with you to make the ceremony unique and memorable - a true reflection of how important that person is to you;
  • has achieved the highest celebrancy qualification and undergoes continuous professional development to ensure they are always working towards the standards of excellence;
  • is regularly reviewed to ensure that they are working with you and with all families professionally and compassionately.

We are confident that all of our members give you the best possible caring and professional service.  We have a rigorous complaints process if you have any concerns.  

This is what you can expect from an institute member

  • Prompt response to your enquiries.
  • Meetings at your convenience, including evenings and weekends where necessary (for your safety, all meetings for the duration of the pandemic are by phone or video call).
  • an open and understanding discussion about how the funeral ceremony should best remember your loved one.
  • Suggestions, if needed, on tributes, music, readings, ritual and symbolic actions.
  • A full draft of a ceremony, completely unique to your loved one, submitted for your approval or amendments before the funeral.
  • A printed keepsake copy after the ceremony.
  • Guidance throughout on all aspects of funeral procedures and information about the crematorium, cemetery or chapel chosen for the ceremony.

All members adhere to the Institute’s Code of Practice

Jen Wilkinson

I am a Funeral Celebrant based in Rhyl and officiate services across the North Wales coast. I come from a counselling, children and youth and pastoral background and qualified as a Funeral Celebrant through Civil Ceremonies – setting up JW Celebrancy in 2021.

“Dear Jen,
Thank you so so much for all your help and kindness, the service was beautiful and gentle and really helped us say goodbye to a wonderful man, it couldn’t have been any better and for that we will always be grateful.
Our love and best wishes to you and your family. xxx “

“Hi Jen,
Just wanted to message to say thanks so much for everything.
Not just for today, which was perfect and even better than we’d hoped for, but for all your guidance, good humour and creative input over the past couple of weeks.
You’ve helped us navigate a difficult time and made sure my Mum had the send-off she deserved.
We’ll be forever grateful. ”
