This guide is designed to help you find and choose a funeral celebrant in Adelaide.

A good funeral celebrant should create a funeral service which is warm and loving, which captures a real sense of who the deceased was, and which gives the deceased the goodbye you are looking for.

This guide is intended to help you find the funeral celebrant that best suits your needs. It’s broken down into 4 parts:

  1. How to use our website to find and compare funeral celebrants in Adelaide
  2. Why you need to compare Adelaide funeral celebrants
  3. How much does an Adelaide funeral celebrant cost?
  4. Other issues to consider when choosing a funeral celebrant in Adelaide

2. Why you need to compare Adelaide funeral celebrants

Although your funeral director manages the overall plans for a funeral, it is the funeral celebrant who officiates – or presents – the funeral service on the day. So when you choose a funeral celebrant, you’re picking the person who needs to write and run a funeral service that not only accurately captures the deceased, their personality and their life, but also meaningfully connects with you, your family and other mourners in attendance.

Your chosen celebrant should be someone you feel you can trust, someone you think will respect and honour your wishes, and someone you feel is suitably qualified and experienced to meet your family’s particular needs. You can find more information about what a funeral celebrant does here.

Traditionally, families have just used the celebrant that their funeral director recommended, leaving no opportunity to determine whether that celebrant was the best person for the job. But with the funeral celebrant playing such a key role in the funeral service, it just doesn’t make sense to decide who you’ll use without comparing your available options.

When you use Gathered Here to find a funeral celebrant, you can compare the celebrants in your area by price, customer rating, experience and services. You can look for funeral celebrants offering particular things – such as the ability to officiate the funeral service in a certain language – and read reviews left by other families in a similar position to yours. You can also look at what accreditations a funeral celebrant has.


3. How much does an Adelaide funeral celebrant cost?

We’ve previously written that funeral celebrants in Australia can cost anywhere between $250 – $660. Adelaide funeral celebrants tend to fall at the cheaper end of the spectrum with average fees ranging from $250 – $400.


4. Other things to consider when choosing a funeral celebrant in Adelaide

Before you make a final decision about a funeral celebrant, there are a couple of other things you may want to consider.

Location

Funeral celebrants are usually based in a particular part of Adelaide, but many are willing to travel outside of that region. By default, our comparison site will show you funeral celebrants within a 15km radius of your postcode. If you don’t find your ideal celebrant in your area, consider searching other suburbs for funeral celebrants who travel. Make sure to check whether travel is included in their fee, or if it costs extra.

Funeral director

Just as it’s important to compare and contrast funeral celebrants, so too, it’s essential to shop around for funeral directors. You want to make sure you’re getting the best service at the best price. You might also want to put your funeral celebrant in touch with your funeral director so they can liaise about funeral plans. You can use our Guide to Funeral Directors in Adelaide to find a funeral director.

Cemetery and crematorium options

Finally, if you don’t already have a family plot, or some kind of affiliation with a particular venue, you may want to think about selecting a cemetery or crematorium in your area. You can find further information about cemeteries and crematoriums in Adelaide in our Complete Guide to Adelaide Cemeteries and our Guide to Adelaide Crematoriums and Cremation Services.
