Gill Kavanagh


I am a Funeral Celebrant and trained with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants, a member of the Natural Death Centre, and Ovate Grade. I work with you to create a beautiful personalised ceremony, one that honours your loved one passing and celebrates their life in a meaningful way to bring comfort and healing. I was called to do this work following several bereavements in my own family and organising their funeral service.

A Funeral is the last honour we can give our loved one who has passed away. It is one of the last remaining ceremonies and it is a very important ritual that assists in the grieving process by being allowed to say our goodbyes and accept that our loved one has moved on in their soul’s journey, whilst being supported by family and friends. Whether you wish for your ceremony to be in indoors or outdoors I can accommodate your wishes. Whilst I follow an earth-based spirituality, I am guided by you to reflect your beliefs and wishes in the service.
I have many years experience of ceremony, ritual and rites of passage. I have run several spiritual Druid Shamanic based retreats, conducted large outdoor ceremonies and brought the World Peace Drum to Anglesey to honour the Druids who died there in a weekend residential retreat. My druid shaman facebook page allows me to express myself with creative writing to inspire the soul through the wheel of the year. I also sing and run sacred singing workshops and use to sing with the Philharmonia Chorus in London. I am based in Lancashire in the North West and cover Greater Manchester and South Cumbria, I can travel further afield.
