It’s not easy, marketing your services as a Funeral Celebrant.     Ensuring the bereaved know about my services means that I need to get to know the Funeral Directors (FD)  in my region, and more importantly that they get to know me, so that when they need a Celebrant, it is my name that comes to mind.  It’s a sensitive process, and Funeral Directors are – quite rightly – wary of using celebrants whose work they don’t know.  Quite right too, I say
