A funeral is obviously a difficult time. I am an expert at looking after your needs, and will gently guide you through the process of arranging a funeral service. I can perform funeral ceremonies throughout Sydney (Australia) and surrounding areas.

Funerals are a very personal time, and I will take time with the family to get the know your loved one and will put together a ceremony that encompasses their personality, their life and all the special memories you have of them.

I can assist you with the Order of Service, the music and the eulogy, with a list of options to choose from, so your loved one is treated with all the respect and love they deserve.

Below are a couple of comments from previous funeral ceremonies I have performed

Thank you for being our celebrant. You did a lovely job and I am so happy how everything went, Denise would have loved it all. In fact I believe she did! Your support and encouragement whilst I was writing the eulogy I am so grateful, it was comforting and helped a lot. Our trip to the crematorium went well and our moments out there with her were very special.

For Denise

Thank you very much for yesterday. It was a beautiful service and a fitting send off for my dear Mum, Thank you and take care, Toni.


Thank you for your good work it was a great comfort for Kay and I and the other members of the family.
As you know, the family has now celebrated a wedding in the State Library; a naming ceremony at the Sydney Harbour Casino; and, a memorial service in the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Your contribution Charyl made the day that much more rewarding.


The Barton Family

Just wanted to thank you again for guiding us through mum’s funeral service. You have such genuine compassion that I think people found it hard to believe you’d never known her. We were all really pleased with the service and felt it was just right for mum.


Harry, Jo & family

Thank you for making a difficult time a lot easier for us. You did a great job at the service. The tears in your eyes, showed that you really care about what you do.

With great appreciation

The Woodley Family

I wanted to tell you again how much we appreciate the help you gave us with Mum’s funeral… So many of our family and friends have commented on the lovely simplicity of the service and your sincere approach…

Catherine and I also appreciated the time you spent with us before the funeral. We felt you really wanted to get to know Mum through our eyes and you helped us to get a clearer view of what we wanted to convey in our eulogy.



Thank you so much for everything.  The whole family was very happy with the service and your sensitive, respectful and warm presence. Many of my friends present commented on how lovely it was. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity for you to be our celebrant.

Warm regards,

Fran and Carol

Hi Charyl

I would just like to thank you for your help and the way you performed the service for Mum. We now know why Olsens recommended you. We certainly appreciate what you did.

Kind regards,


Dear Charyl

Thank you so much for your lovely service to celebrate mums life. I appreciated your kind words, the support you offered to the children and all of our family.

I appreciated your idea of closing the curtain before the end of the service to signify closure. I thought that between you and Jayson we were in safe hands. I felt comforted when I looked up and saw your eyes and your smile.   I felt I could ‘relax and just start to grieve.

Thank you so much for your care of mum and support of us

Warm regards

Deb McEvoy-Herbert
