Independent Funeral Celebrant

About Me

My name is Kylie Barnes. I am an Independent Civil Funeral Celebrant and have been trained by and am a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.  I have been undertaking funeral services both in the Chapel and by the graveside as well as at natural burial grounds for approximately 7 years.

I am able to officiate at all crematoria, and by the graveside and I provide families with funeral services specifically written to their wishes.  I generally cover the South East London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.  I also travel further afield if required.

I was originally born in Perth, Western Australia in 1972 and have lived in London since the age of 12.  I am also a fully qualified woodwind music teacher and classically trained musician in flute, clarinet and saxophone, and am able to offer musical services after the funeral service has taken place at your wake.

I also have a vast knowledge of genealogical research spanning some 25 years and can often help in tracing family trees, if required, please ask me for further details.
