Celebrant Funerals in Chester for Your Lost Loved One

Celebrant Funerals in Chester We can help you to conduct celebrant funerals in Chester in accordance with your wishes. The deceased person may also have left certain instructions for loved ones to follow, and at John Knowles Funerals, we ensure that these are carried out. Our experienced celebrants can organise and lead the service. Though traditionally this role would have been undertaken by a religious representative, today, many people prefer non-religious funerals. The real focus of the funeral ceremony would be to celebrate the life of the deceased. The event would be designed around the beliefs, interests, relationships, values and wishes of the person who died. It could also be in keeping with the wishes of family members. It may or may not have religious or spiritual components.

For families in Chester, celebrant funerals can be led by a person from any walk of life, regardless of age or gender. Some may have experience as grief counsellors, funeral directors, social or healthcare workers, psychologists or healthcare professionals. They could even be members of religious organisations who choose to undertake non-religious work. Today, many people prefer a non-standardised funeral that is celebrated according to traditional rites and rituals. These may not reflect the life or personality of their loved one. We can guide you through the entire process to provide a lasting and memorable tribute to the departed soul. We take care of the formalities, paperwork and legal requirements.

There could be several reasons why many people today prefer celebrant funerals in Chester and elsewhere. If the family or the deceased did not have religious beliefs, or did not practice a formal religion, such funerals are the right option to commemorate them. Humanist ceremonies are conducted by skilled, compassionate professionals. They are more intimate, emotionally satisfying and personalised. They also highlight the person rather than the formal religious rites and rituals. Contact John Knowles Funerals for guidance. We can provide you with more information. If you’d like us to choose the hymns, readings, venue, flowers and music, we are glad to assist. Additionally, we can also take care of the transportation, viewing, donations, tokens of remembrance and guidelines for cremation or burial.

John, Tash & the team went above and beyond what was needed ... they were all truly wonderful in every aspect of their care and understanding. Thankyou.

John Knowles and staff supported my family in the most professional and empathetic way during our recent bereavement. Jan at the Rossett office went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed. Guidance and suggestions were given to help us choose what was right for us. Then the staff at John Knowles handled everything seamlessly and with the utmost care, respect and professionalism. Nothing was too much trouble and any changes we wanted to make were happily welcomed by Jan. Jan recommended a Celebrant called Margaret Harrison to take our service - she was also excellent. I cannot thank Mr Knowles and his team enough for the level of service we received. Mr Knowles personally ensured my Mother-in-Law was supported on this difficult day. It was also nice to have two ladies from the company as bearers. I would highly recommend John Knowles and his staff.

My Dad passed away in 2017 and his ashes were sprinkled without me knowing. I needed closure and for me this was something that proved he was here and missed. The memorial gardens I tried had no capacity. I’d been out Roy Orbison was on the radio. One of my Dad’s favourite singers and we had seen the musical the weekend I got engaged. I drive by the Broughton branch and on this day I plucked up the courage to go in. I couldn’t have been treated with more care or respect by Sarah and John. I was even apologised to when John had to take a mobile call. They put me in touch with Flintshire memorials and I now have a tree in the memorial garden there. It was ready for 19/8/21 the 4th anniversary of losing my Dad. I now have closure, I’ll always miss my Dad but I have a beautiful & tranquil place to remember him. Considering John Knowles Funerals hadn’t arranged my Dad’s cremation, I was treated with so much care. This company is a gem up here and really wants to be part of the community they are in. It’s rare to find a company that acts like they do with no money changing hands. I just wish they had carried out my Dad’s arrangements. If you are looking for a funeral company that treats you like family John Knowles is the company to choose at what is a very difficult time.

We can’t thank you all enough. I’m lucky enough to know Sarah as a very caring compassionate friend so I felt so much better knowing my mum was in her safe keeping. Margaret was amazing and such a lovely lady and John made me laugh on the day which helped so much as I was far from ok. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts x
