Bedfordshire Celebrant Irene Grant-Jones ‘Sings’ ‘Reads Poetry’ ‘Creates a Unique Personal Tribute’

Irene takes a personal and compassionate interest in families as they prepare for the funeral or memorial service enabling them to choose the most appropriate and effective music for this important occasion.
Irene is based in Bedford near the towns of Milton Keynes, Northampton, Cambridge and Luton. However, she will travel any distance to add that special element to a service whether it is conducted at a crematorium or in a church.

Irene’s husband, Tim Grant-Jones can play all the organ or piano music repertoire for a funeral service or ceremony for church and crematorium services ensuring a reliable and unified musical experience for the whole occasion.

We can also help you choose all the other music and hymns and we can bring a (digital) piano to the venue if needed.

Listen to Irene reading:

Do not Stand at my Grave and Weep  (Mary Elizabeth Frye)

You can Shed Tears that I am Gone   (David Harkins)



‘Your contribution to the funeral service was very much appreciated not only by my family but by everyone present. Your rendition of Purcell’s music and Tate’s words filled the church and moved us all. My granddaughter was transfixed by you.’     Rob Sansome

St Paul’s Church Bedford. December 2012


‘I have on a number of occasions experienced Irene’s ability to read and sing at funeral services and enhance the occasion with her enormous talent. Irene’s contribution is always appropriate and sensitive to the needs of the occasion.’     Canon John Glover DL, Vicar of Rhyl
