.....in a time lacking in truth and certainty and filled with anguish and despair, no woman  should be shamfaced in attempting to give back  to the world, through her work, a portion of its lost heart. - Louise Bogan Brian M.  Loomes COMMONWEALTH AUTHORISED FUNERAL CELEBRANT

My Funeral Services are dedicated to making a distressing event into a beautiful memory incorporating the life, the loves, the beliefs and the achievements of the deceased. The ceremony and eulogy is planned and implemented with care and sensitivity and in accordance with the needs and wishes of the family.  

Prior to becoming a Registered Celebrant I was a NSW Police Officer for 40 years. On retirement I was appointed a Celebrant in 1994 . I have been a Justice of the Peace for 25 years.  I am a full time professional celebrant and have conducted in excess of 1000 funeral services  I became a Celebrant because I wanted to continue to provide a community service. I enjoy helping people and pride myself in paying attention to detail
