“Marc Oxley was very helpful, understanding and caring. He explained events, what options we could take, how the service would be conducted etc. Marc read the tribute written by myself and our children with a great sense of feeling and sensitivity. This was my, my family and friends, first experience of a Civil Ceremony and everyone has commented on what a wonderful service it was. ”


“My Husbands death was very unexpected. I also had no knowledge or experience of a Civil Funeral. I am really pleased we took this option, which allows people to remember in their own way and does not exclude anyone’s personal beliefs. Mr Oxley was very supportive”  


“Marc Oxley was absolutely fantastic. Sympathetic and very professional. ”  


“The Family of WJ were exceptionally pleased with the ceremony undertaken by Marc Oxley. He made the ceremony moving, celebratory and memorable. Many friends and family were so taken with the ceremony they have decided to have the same at their passing..... My Father would have approved”.


“Although I thanked you at the crematorium, I would again like to express our sincere thanks to you for the faultless service you provided. Several of our friends and relatives believed that you had known B, as your presentation of his life was as near perfect as we could have wished. Thank you for your part in the organisation of a sad event. I know that his family could not have wanted a more fitting celebration of B’s life”


“Without exception, everyone present on the day commented how lovely the service was- very few were aware there is an alternative to a traditional religion based ceremony”


“Our celebrant was a charming and extremely sensitive person who greatly helped to ease our grief and instill in our family some optimism for the future.”


You spoke with sincerity, sadness, and sometimes humour.  It was very moving. Thanks millions Marc.  You really made the difference we wanted for Dad,  you delivered a remarkable service”


“We were VERY happy indeed with ceremony. Everyone commented how good it was and fitting for my Mother, and I would add how well it was presented. THANK YOU VERY MUCH INDEED. All I can say is that Rutland is fortunate to have you.”  

The service was outstanding. Having been to several ’religious’ services before and found the content gloomy and inappropriate this service was like a breath of fresh air. The Funeral Celebrant made the occasion one to remember.”


“All in all the ceremony was exactly what I and the family wanted. My wife would have approved. I would recommend Marc Oxley to anyone who wanted this type of celebration of a persons life.”


“We could not have wished for a more dignified way to mark the end of our son’s life”


“It is what I want for my own funeral”


“People said it was the best funeral they had been to”  


“The ceremony was exactly what I wanted. We changed the content of the ceremony quite a few times but were always met with encouragement to get it right. We were very pleased with the service”





These are a few examples of the comments I have received from family members following the Funeral of their loved one.
