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
I’ve just had some postcards printed to send out to FDs in my area of the Midlands (You may be receiving your copies through the post soon!).
I chose a very poignant verse for these cards, that I thought I would share with you. Feel free to pass it along….
“Say not in grief that she is no more, but say in thankfulness that she was. A death is not the extinguishing of a light, but the putting out of the lamp because the dawn has come”.
