Funeral Celebrants


Stevie Glover

Stevie Glover

My name is Stevie Glover. I have worked with Richard Bird for several years. We share a quiet, thorough approach to our work.

Through Richard I have met people and families from all backgrounds. Each have their own ideas about how they want to say goodbye to their family member or friend.

It is my job to make the ceremony everything they’d like it to be.

A few years ago I was awarded The Good Funeral Guide Celebrant of the Year. I’m proud to represent the very best that Funeral Celebrancy can offer.

Chris Haine

Chris has been conducting humanist and civil funerals for over a decade. His work has been featured in a BBC Inside Out film and he continues to receive many repeat requests from families and funeral directors from across Tyneside and Northumberland.

“Every funeral is as unique as every person who has ever lived but the common theme, beyond telling someone’s tale of life, is finding the appropriate mix of sincerity and humour; tears and laughter get us through the toughest moments of our lives”, Chris says. “Sometimes it is not what is said but how it is said. However the most important thing I strive for is that a person’s character and personality will shine through the service.”
