Funeral Testimonials

Below are some of the lovely words I receive from families I have worked with.  It is always an honour to be able to learn about a person and then to be able to share their story with their family and friends.


Roy brings a genuine warmth and empathy to his role as a Professional Celebrant. As a skilled and insightful writer, he will research and write your loved-ones story, creating a perfect ceremony to honour life's important rites of passage. Working with Roy has been a pleasure and I would highly recommend his services.

Jacqueline Cale - Founder of 'The Celebrant Circle'


We were supported as a family at all times. Nothing was too much to ask, as there were several alterations to the eulogy. We want to thank Roy Coleman for showing empathy, professionalism and such kindness to us all.

Honestly, I had the most wonderful experience dealing with Roy. which might be an odd thing to say about a funeral, but he really was wonderful to talk to about Rich and then expressed everything I wanted to say beautifully. I cannot recommend him enough and EVERYONE who came to the funeral or watched online has told me how wonderful they thought the celebrant was - I will have no hesitation recommending him to anyone that needs a celebrant in the future.

Luke H


We were so thankful to have Roy as our celebrant. He took time to get to know about our loved one. We had a lovely conversation about the service we wanted which Roy carefully planned for. We had some unique requests - Roy was so accommodating with how we wanted our service to be. Since our beautiful funeral we have been inundated with kind words about how lovely the service for our loved one was. We highly recommend Roy as a celebrant!

My uncle was truly a character and Roy was able to give a true reading of the man. If you didn’t know him, you would have known him by the end of the service and that was all down to Roy. My dad has already told me that he would like Roy at his service, and I’m hoping that, I don’t have to call Roy for many years.

Georgina D


We totally felt that we were in safe hands with Roy.  Thank you!

Jo R


Thank you Roy for your service for my late dad.  It was done very well and we were given lots of compliments about the service you led.

Hannah H


Roy showed a real understanding of our grief during a very difficult period in our lives.

Feliz M


I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful words you put together and for how you truly took the time to capture my little girl for the amazing little girl she was.  I wanted to thank you for helping us give her the best send off we possibly could and for showing the support and empathy leading up to and on Wednesday.  I am honestly truly grateful.

Courtney G


Roy, we are absolutely delighted with your interpretation of Alice's life story.

Marsha J


Thank you very much for taking the time to write words of praise. Thank you too for being right by my side. I took great strength from it.

Simon M


Thank you again for providing Mum with such a well-timed and suitable farewell yesterday.  I have heard from several of those present that they thoroughly enjoyed listening to Mum's story, and thought it was presented clearly and with respect.  I have also heard from some who watched the webcast, and they were complimentary also.

Shuna B


I just wanted to say thank you. It’s not often when the word “perfect” can be used to its full value but yesterday deserves its merit.

The service was beyond amazing. You delivered it in a way that went beyond what dad and I envisaged. I appreciate the pronunciation of mums full name and home town was challenging but honestly, we loved at your way of saying it. It showed character and to us, humour.

It felt not like a celebrant speaking words of mum but a friend who we have known for years, please accept this as a credit to you and you are certainly a master of your field.

But simply, THANK YOU. The word is not enough to express our gratitude towards you. Thank you for coaching us, thank you for the preparation you put in to the words you spoke of mum (everybody said how perfect it was) and thank you for supporting me at the alter when it was my time to read.

Will J


The service felt personal and represented my father as I remember him. To leave the crematorium knowing we gave my father a service full of the respect and love he deserved was a feeling I will hold onto and Nightingale's were a big part of that so thank you.

The Evans family


It was a positive experience at a very sad time with help given in a compassionate caring way, thank you.

Tara H


Roy delivered a lovely service; we felt like we had known the celebrant for longer than one meeting we had with him and felt very comfortable with Roy during an extremely difficult time. 

The Bowers Family


Roy provided such a friendly and professional service. Roy really helped at a very difficult time.  We had lots of positive comments after the service too.

The Unsworth Family


Everybody who attended the service was very impressed with the celebrant.  The eulogy he gave was absolutely lovely with the right balance of sensitivity and humour.



Roy made the service amazing adding little bits to make the families words and memories fun, loving and humorous, which was much appreciated. Thank you.
