What is a Funeral Celebrant?

A funeral celebrant is a qualified person who officiates funeral services by planning and overseeing funeral proceedings. Funeral celebrants conduct non-religious, semi-religious and spiritual funeral services.

Many celebrants aim for the funeral service to be a ‘Celebration of Life’ that honors the person’s memory. This approach emphasizes how the person lived their life, their personality traits and the memories of the mourners. For this reason, celebrants are the go-to option for people looking to create ceremonies of substance and meaning without necessarily mentioning religious beliefs or the afterlife.

Funeral Celebrants vs. Funeral Directors

A funeral celebrant and a funeral director often perform many of the same functions. They coordinate and conduct various aspects of a funeral ceremony in conjunction with the deceased person’s immediate family.

However, the two roles are not mutually exclusive. Funeral celebrants can also hold a funeral director license, and many licensed funeral service professionals have also undertaken the training necessary to become a certified celebrant.
