My life experiences have led me to my present situation as an Independent Celebrant where I feel I belong and am comfortable.
The 9 years' service in the Territorial Army rising to the Commissioned rank of Full Lieutenant and the 27 years' service in the Metropolitan Police including service as a Detective Sergeant in the CID gave me an insight into death and life's tragedies.
After my Police service I was a professional Toastmaster for 22 years gaining even more experience of the 'University of Life'.
I have been a Freemason for over 45 years and I am currently a Grand Officer of the Grand Lodge of England and also a Freeman of the City of London.
The sad loss my daughter at age 38 has prepared me for my proud position of a Funeral Celebrant and has given me empathy with the bereaved families I humbly serve.
In 2009 I qualified as a Celebrant and I am now a member of three professional associations of Independent Celebrants
My preferred area is West Kent and South East London, particularly Bromley and Orpington. In the last 7 years I have conducted hundreds of services of all kinds, and had the privilege and pleasure of offering discounts to Veterans and Members of the Armed Forces, the Royal British Legion, Police, Fire and Ambulance personnel and NHS Nurses and Volunteers.
I look forward very much to hearing from you and working very closely with you.

Being a Funeral Celebrant is a privilege and an honour and I acknowledge the faith and trust given to me by families in this final act of Love and Respect.
