Rev'd Harvey Barnes - Funeral Minister

About Me

Reverend Harvey BarnesMy name is Harvey Barnes and I am a professionally trained and experienced Funeral Minister based in Plymouth, Devon. Having been ordained several years ago, I now work independently. I conduct funeral services at the crematorium and cemetery chapels in the Plymouth area and I seek to do so in a caring and compassionate manner. I am also available to officiate at interment of ashes and graveside services.

I have a good working relationship with all the local funeral directors. If you'd like me to take a service, please ask your funeral director to contact me. I will then telephone you and arrange a convenient day and time to meet with family members or executors so I can gather information to make the service a personal one. If you are not living locally, or if you would prefer, I can discuss your wishes over the phone and also communicate via email.

Here's what you can expect when I visit or phone about the service.

I will...

1. Advise on a format for the service.
2. Listen as you share with me your memories to help me to prepare a personalised tribute.
3. Advise and support family or close friends who wish to participate in the service.
4. Help with choosing hymns and/or special pieces of music.
5. Talk about readings and poems for the service.
6. Speak about prayers and a time of quiet reflection during the service.
7. Discuss the layout of an Order of Service if required.


If you feel I can be of help to you please contact me and I will do all I can to assist.
