The United Kingdom Society of Celebrants  (UKSoC) was founded by James Convery with a view to setting professional standards of celebrancy and celebrant training throughout the UK.

James over 30 years of professional experience working with people of all ages within public, voluntary and private sectors. The benefit of all this experience is that you get a friendly, reliable, professional service every time.

James believes that you just cannot buy meaning. Any special life event must be properly marked with all the respect, dignity and sensitivity that we ALL deserve. The meaning comes from listening  very carefully to you , to understand what is important to you, what is the heart and soul of the occasion, what you want to take away as a feeling and a memory to treasure forever. James also believes that each of us is unique, so each ceremony must be personally written and not “off the peg”. James has experience as a writer and is able to write creative, thoughtful and touching eulogies, services and ceremonies unique to you. This ethos is embedded in to all UKSoC Celebrant Training Courses


For those of you interested in training to be an Independent Celebrant within the UK,  the United Kingdom Society of Celebrants (UKSoC) can provide several celebrant training options tailored to an individual needs.
