My name is Kay Gilmour and I am a qualified Funeral Celebrant and Life Coach. Helping people through challenging times in their lives is what I do best. It is both a privilege and very rewarding to be part of one of the most significant occasions in a person’s life. There are many ways in which we can make a difference to each other and my way is to offer you my sincere and heartfelt contribution to your special day
As an independent Funeral Celebrant and Life Coach I have the privilage of providing service, support, care and guidance to bereaved families across Tayside and Fife. Having worked in education for almost 25 years, I retrained to become a Life Coach and then a Funeral Celebrant. It is a real honour for me to work so closely with people and help them through what can be some of the most difficult of times. I live in Broughty Ferry with my two trusty Border Collies and we can be found most mornings strolling across our beautiful beach.
When we lose someone close to us, life seems very confusing and overwhelming. I am here to help you every step of the way to ensure that the funeral for your loved one is something very special, full of love, peace and dignity.
Experience and Testimony
We are all unique and as such our final journey should be one that truly reflects the real us. Whether that be through music, poems, reflection, prayers, or the eulogy itself, this is your chance to make it something special. I have a wide range of resources that I can offer to help you choose all the different elements you want to incorporate. I offer both religious and non-religious ceremonies and as a member of the UK Society of Celebrants you can know that you are in safe hands.
What Others Say
"Kay has a heart of gold and is a real professional. She exceeded our expectations"
"Kay took a lot of pressure off our family at a very difficult time. She did my dad proud"
"Kay helped us put together a really wonderful service for my beautiful mum. She was amazing"
Support All The Way
I work mainly in Dundee and Angus and will come to your home for our first meeting where we can begin to piece together exactly what you want. I can support you with choosing music, readings or poems and will write a eulogy that really reflects the life and personality of your loved one. As a strong speaker, I will deliver the service with clarity and compassion.
Nothing is too Much Trouble
There is always a lot to think about when someone close to you dies. I will take at least some of that burden from you and help you create a very special funeral. When using the services of a Celebrant you can choose to have a non-religious or semi-religious service - both can be very beautiful. Whatever you want on the day, I will do my very best to accommodate it.
A Truly Professional Service
I offer a professional service that keeps you updated and informed every step of the way. From clear upfront costs, to professional delivery on the day, you can be confident that I will do my best for you. I see it as my job to ensure that everything runs smoothly and I will be by your side to deal with any unforeseen issues on the day.
Why Chose Kay?
There are many different options for you when looking to work with a celebrant. What makes me different is the time I take with you to get your special ceremony just right. I do not limit the time I spend with you as I understand that everyone's needs are different. I am a great listener, easy to talk to and I can take what may seem like random facts and turn them into a ceremony that is not only very personal but really grasps and celebrates the character of your loved one. You can rest assured you have made the best decision when you chose me to be your Funeral Celebrant. I will not let you down!
