Valerie Hickey

Civil Celebrant

Celebrant led funeral services have become increasingly popular in recent years as they allow family and friends the flexibility to have exactly the type of ceremony they want. This provides the opportunity to capture the essence and character of their departed loved one with music, singing, poetry and personal tributes of their choice.

Family and friends can participate in the service which can include religious or spiritual content of your choosing. Alternatively the entire service can be led by the celebrant and can be non religious. My aim is to offer you a professional, caring, bespoke service that is completely flexible and meets your personal needs.

Photographs, videos and personal items can be included and for those who are unable to attend live streaming is possible.


My role as your celebrant is to offer you guidance and support to help you create a meaningful and personal tribute that captures the spirit, character and legacy of the deceased person.

I like to work closely with the family and friends of the deceased so that together we can build a personal ceremony that truly honours the life of the person that has died. We can meet at your home, the funeral directors or another location of your choice. 

Themed services are welcomed.

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little, but not for long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that once we shared
Miss me, but let me go. 

For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all part of the master plan
A step on the road to home. 

When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know.
Laugh at all the things we used to do
Miss me, but let me go.
