FACULTY OF FUNERAL CELEBRANTS

 

The Faculty was established on 1st January, 2019 as a specialist professional forum for independent Ministers and Celebrants who include elements of religious content as a central part of funeral and memorial services, and who are committed to the highest standards of ceremony preparation, delivery, bereavement care, support and ethical practice.

 

Membership of the Faculty represents a public commitment to these objectives demonstrated by the use of the post-nominal letters MFFC, and being part of an association of like-minded colleagues. Celebrants meeting these criteria and who wish to are welcome to apply for Faculty membership either as stand-alone membership or in conjunction with SBP membership.

 

Note: Humanist or non-religious celebrants are not eligible for membership of the Faculty as there are many professional organisations representing this valued area of celebrancy.

 

The Faculty, which is fully part of the Society of Bereavement Practitioners, is administered by a small group of honorary officers:
