Funeral Ceremonies Celebrating
"Death provides some with inescapable loss. Professionalism on the part of the celebrant can take much weight off your mind and assist greatly at a time of immense personal need"
When and where can a civil celebrant be called upon?
  • Any time
  • Any place 7 days a week.
  • A celebrant can perform the celebration of someone's life at a funeral home, a public hall, a crematorium, even the graveside.
  • There are no actual restrictions on where the celebration can be held.
Why a Civil Celebrant?
  • Your option for a non-religious or religious ceremony.
  • Celebrate the broad life of the departed family member.
  • Friends and family can take part in readings etc.
  • A civil celebrant can tailor a service to suit the requirements of the deceased's family and cater for other groups to be involved, such as the RSL, a Masonic Lodge etc.
There is no regulation that requires the client to deal with a celebrant only through the funderal director. If the client so chooses, he/she is entitled to deal directly with their celebrant.

Philip Greentree will attend your private home to discuss with you details of the deceased's life and your requirements for saying farewell. He will construct a ceremony that complies with your requests.

See Funeral Planning

Many choose to have a civil or non-religious service because they prefer a broad approach in celebrating the life of their departed family member.

With the extraordinarily diverse cultural heritage that Australia has become, a civil service provides for the beliefs and non-beliefs of the deceased's families and fiends
