My name is Teri Berkengoff and I’m an Independent Celebrant, specialising in funerals and I am a fully trained member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.

I’m based in Beckenham, BR3, and I cover South East London, Kent and Surrey. I conduct non-religious, semi-religious, spiritual and creative funeral services that reflect the beliefs, cultural traditions, personality and lifestyle of your loved one and honours their memory.

It’s up to you how you would like to say goodbye and remember your loved one

I’ll spend time with you, usually in your own home, to understand your wishes and “get to know” the person whose life is to be remembered and help tell their story. We’ll focus on how the person lived their life, their personality and your memories. 

I’ll write the service with the information you provide, putting your thoughts and memories into words. I’ll lead the service on the day and, if you wish, you can choose to participate in any way you like - for example a family member or close friend may want to deliver the tribute or eulogy, read a poem or reading or sing a song.

Honouring your loved one

Together we’ll create something that is truly memorable and comforting on this most important of days
