Honour Your Loved One’s Life in a Meaningful Way

Bereavement can be a devastating time for many of us. From my own personal experience, I know the importance of a meaningful farewell ceremony or celebration. It gives us the chance to celebrate and share the best of those we have lost and inch forward in our grieving.

We smile and cry over treasured memories whilst keeping ourselves busy and feeling useful. Indeed, a funeral celebration or ceremony is our chance to reflect on our loved one’s life, recall the moments we’ve shared with them, and start our journey through loss and grief.

Pushing up the Daisies in Worcestershire, England helps you do all of these. Hello, my name is Alison Broome. I’m here to work with you and the funeral director to create and deliver the best tribute and service for your loved one, creating a truly bespoke and personalised ceremony.

Celebrate Life in Your

Own Way

I specialize in green burials, which is an environmentally friendly way of honouring your loved one’s memory. However, if you prefer to celebrate their life differently, I’m available for other types of ceremonies as well. You also have the choice as to whether or not you want to include aspects of religion.

Remember, there’s no one way to honour one’s passing, so you can approach the celebration or ceremony in your own way. No matter what your preference, I’ll work with you in organising a personal, sincere celebration.

How We’ll Work Together

When you face the trauma of the death of a loved one, making decisions can be hard to do. I will sit with you, listen to your memories, give you time to share anecdotes and stories, look at your photos, and weave it all together into a tribute that will reflect the essence of them.

I will create and deliver a ceremony or celebration that is unique and truly bespoke. It can include music, readings, or prayers if that is what you wish.

My Story

As a fully qualified funeral celebrant, I am committed to providing those who are bereaved with a distinctive and meaningful celebration for a life well lived. I decided to become a celebrant after the death of my mother.

I was closely involved in the planning and delivery of her funeral, writing and presenting the eulogy and introducing other family members and friends to perform their tributes. I felt greatly honoured to be able to do this and to give mum a fitting memorial celebration.

A few months later, I came to the realisation that I had a gift for this and decided to train as a celebrant with the Civil Ceremonies Limited. After rigorous training and assessment in all aspects of the funeral celebration, I achieved the NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy (RQF), which is the highest nationally recognised qualification in the field.

Since completing my training, I have undertaken further research into the types of funeral available, and this has led me to discover the area of green and natural burials. These allow for greater time and creativity in providing a fitting and full tribute for your loved one in a location of your choice. Having less of an impact in the environment than cremation, green and natural burials also appeal to my environmental credentials,

In addition, I can advise on aspects of alternative ceremonies. You would be surprised at the range of options available for transport, ceremony, venue, and coffin. That’s why it is sometimes important to shop around. This is something that you can do before bereavement and is something I would strongly recommend.

In my spare time, I enjoy being outside and walking with my beloved dog in the Worcestershire countryside and further afield. My other interests include climbing mountains, preserving and cooking, foraging, meditating, knitting, and reading.

In my past, I have been a teacher in school and outdoor education, a director of shows, a dog walker, a volunteer as a Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition assessor, a flautist and recorder player, a singer in a choir, and a Morris dancer. I feel happiest and most relaxed in the countryside and follow many spiritual paths.

When people describe my character some of the themes that emerge are my strong empathetic nature and my desire to help people in need to achieve their potential. I am loyal and don’t give up easily if I have started on something. I am creative and try to always do my best for those around me and am at ease in front of large groups of people.

I would be honoured and privileged to work with you in providing a ceremony or celebration that reflects your loved one’s life. I firmly believe that a celebration of life can be a real stepping stone in the grieving process.
