Lesley Forest is an experienced funeral celebrant and Ceremony Pre-planning Specialist with over 10 years experience

One of life's greatest privileges is to be asked to help someone during their time of grief. My aim is to create and conduct a ceremony that is an appropriate tribute to your loved one while also helping you to manage a very difficult and distressing time in your life.

My enthusiasm for finding out what motivates people gives me an inherent desire to listen and learn their wishes. My ability to translate that into a memorable experience is essential for a ceremony that celebrates someone's life.
