Oooh – very excited with the news that I have been selected from hundreds of nominees to go through to the final stages of this year’s glittering Good Funeral Awards ceremony.
Looking at the list of nominees I am the only North West based celebrant to be short-listed as a potential winner of the prestigious national title “Celebrant Of The Year”.
Fran Hall, C.E.O of The Good Funeral Guide says:
“The Good Funeral Awards recognise exceptional service to bereaved people from all aspects of the funeral industry and supporting services. By progressing this far, Rosemarie has already demonstrated outstanding professionalism, empathy and a willingness to go the extra mile.”
The Good Funeral Awards are wholly independent of the funeral industry and are supported by consumer advocates the Good Funeral Guide and the Natural Death Centre.
Brian Jenner, the event organiser, said:
“The Good Funeral Awards recognise all those unsung heroes who work so hard for the bereaved and whose role can so easily be overlooked. Some of the nicest people in Britain work in the funeral business.”
The awards, which are in their fifth year, will be held at the Porchester Hall in London on Thursday 8 September 2016. The presentation ceremony will be hosted by Penny Smith, familiar to many as a presenter of GMTV and numerous other TV programmes. Sadly I won’t be able to attend but I look forward to the announcement of the results!
Whilst it’s an honour to be considered for this award, I actually feel honoured every time I conduct a funeral. I consider it a privilege to help the bereaved at a time when they most need it.
