" The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious – the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science - Albert Einstein
Every year I sign up for a course, residential and non-residential, which helps me to fine-tune some of my skills and to open my mind to new ideas and innovation.
Over the past year or so, I have noticed a steep rise in people asking for something spiritual, but not necessarily religious – and I appreciate that there is a distinction. So, I am joining a spiritual forum for the weekend in June, to explore this a little more.
Many of the accolades received from families have appreciated the emphasis I place on creating atmosphere, presence, and awareness at ceremonies, but which also respectfully embrace secular and multicultural beliefs.
“…it had a spiritual feel about it, which brought comfort and a sense of serenity to the occasion.” – Julia
I am confident the weekend will prove to be fruitful – I will keep you posted.
Just a quick note to thank you for conducting Joan's burial service for us. Kev and I feel the occasion went very well and we also received many positive comments from the family, all due to your input and professionalism.

From my original introduction to Steve initiated by Paul from Coop Funeral Service's in Stone, (who also played a fantastic, caring and compassionate role in my Mum's final journey), Steve... delivered a beautiful, thoughtful and loving eulogy. I and my family and friends could not have had a better last few moments with Mum; with such compassionate and the effortless running of her Cremation, especially at these most difficult and emotional times for us all, heightened by this awful Corona pandemic.
Thank you Steve
Roland, Family and friends
Thanking you for your service for Malcolm, it was very moving and you told the stories with feeling.
It was a good day, I will always remember it with peaceful thoughts.
The [stoke City] scarf was very appreciated as were his stories and the music.
Take care and carry on your special work.
Steve was recommended to us for the funeral of our dear mum Olive.
We were not disappointed.
Steve was professional, respectful and handled everything sensitively. His calm approach helped us throughout a very difficult time.
As he spoke about our mum it filled us with peace and hope too. A celebration of her life came across clearly and strongly.
We know our mum would have been pleased with the service and choice of music and poems.
Thank you Steve.

My husband's life celebration was a beautiful ceremony.
Mr Game-Blackmoor advised me and my son on the order of service and helped us to choose the music.
He spoke about my husband in a beautiful, sensitive and uplifting way.
He organised a live webcast for relatives and friends which was very important to me, because not many people could attend.
I felt it was a truly special and moving tribute to my husband. I had a lot of messages from my friends and relatives who confirmed how beautiful the service was and how it helped to say goodbye to Ray.
I would like to thank Steve for handling the service, at a time of sadness, with empathy and dignity.
It caught the character of Andy perfectly.
Our family cannot adequately express just how thankful we are to you for such a wonderful service for my dad.
We felt that this was such an uplifting service, your beautiful words were a true reflection of the man my dad was, read as though you had known him personally.
My mum spoke to me after the service to say she loved how you had maintained appropriate eye contact with her throughout the service, comforting her, talking about dad with her,
Thank you for the sensitive way in which you explained the service to us and the help you gave in choosing the beautiful music for the service, you were able to make this process a pain free experience and your knowledge, compassion and professionalism ensured that dad received a very beautiful service.
Steve we found you to be a very lovely man, and we are so thankful that it was you officiating at my dad's service.
The service was great and I would definitely recommend him to anybody that would want a similar service for their loved-ones
I would like to thank you for my husband's beautiful funeral ceremony.
The service was very special and you presented it so beautifully.
I cried, but I am very pleased that you smiled to us all.
I loved the way you spoke about Ray and his life.
I couldn't have imagined it in any better way.
I don't know how long it will take me to come to terms with losing him, but I already feel more at peace.
I had a lot of messages and calls from my friends and they all thought that it was a very special and moving service.
Some even said that it was the best funeral they had ever been to.
My son read that it is possible to watch the web cast for 28 more days if this is requested within next three days.
Could you please, advice us how we can do it.
Thank you again so much.
