Clare Oldfield - a Hertfordshire funeral celebrant

   Why work with Clare?

I am an open-minded  St Albans-based funeral celebrant.   I respect all spiritual beliefs and views regarding death, and will listen to your family’s story with warmth and compassion. I serve Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hillingdon, but I particularly like

working with local families whose life stories are embedded in the places I know well.  

I thoroughly enjoy my work, and consider it an honour to help families create personal and cathartic ceremonies to say their goodbyes.  I subscribe to ongoing professional development from The Celebrants Collective, have adopted The Celebrant Accord, am DBS cleared, and am fully insured.  

Prior to becoming a funeral celebrant, I spent twenty years working in education in both the private and state sectors, at home and abroad.  Having decided upon a change of direction, I undertook my training to become a qualified funeral celebrant with Green Fuse, and have attained a level 3 diploma for funeral celebrants accredited by OCN London. 

When I'm not working as a funeral celebrant, I'm at my happiest reading or listening to a good book, walking my dog or catching up with family and friends.
