Sydney Funeral Celebrant

My name is Scott Duncombe and I am a Sydney Funeral Celebrant.  Losing someone is never easy, however, remembering them in the way that they would want to be remembered is important.  I will make sure that the ceremony reflects their life, personality and their wishes.  A good ceremony will talk about the good times and all the good they did in this world.  This is a hard time, but a time to be remembered.


So if you're looking for a Celebrant in Sydney who will guide you through the process, who will listen, laugh and maybe even have a cry with you (I am human), then touch base with Scott who will help you get through this tough time and will make your loved one be remembered with style, class and dignity.

Scott was recently assigned funeral director for my beautiful brothers funeral but he became so much more than that to each and every person who came together during this time.Warren was only 58. Words cannot do this man justice - he not only managed this process so professionally but he became our friend, a friend who helped and supported us.A few days after Warrens funeral he marched in the Mardi Gras with a little bit of Warren on his sleeve and stopped to give us a hug and kiss . Scott thank you!



I found Scott helped our family wonderfully throughout this difficult time having meeting before was great as he chose to get to know my dad so he could portray him very well. Dads send off was exactly what he would have wanted thanks to you. It was beautiful he would have been sitting up somewhere proud as punch so thank you again from all of the family.Melody


Scott on behalf of the family I would like to sincerely thank you for presiding over Dads Service on Wednesday, we have all commented that you made a huge difference and that the comments you made were both sensitive and certainly hit the mark. You achieved an understanding of Dad in a very short time and the sense of humour and honesty you demonstrated at our Sunday meeting was greatly appreciated. Thank you for making our tough week both memorable and worthy of Dad and everyone who attended.
Kindest Regards Brian and Graham Harcourt


Dear Scott


I write with heartfelt thanks regarding your work on Warren’s funeral.  You were, quite simply, amazing.


To me, Funeral Directors create a picture of four men in top hats, creaking doors and sobriety - Picaluna were, thankfully, far from that.  We really didn’t want a traditional funeral, or funeral company, and you truly offered a delightful alternative.  


Whilst it was a tough time, you were always considerate, helpful, patient and empathetic. It was a personal level of service one rarely experiences.  I can’t believe I’m saying this, but you made arranging a funeral almost a pleasurable experience.


Working with you felt like a real partnership in developing the best possible day to remember Warren. Your input was always welcome - a perfect blend of ideas to make the day special, but consideration for what we were looking for. We never felt rushed or pushed into decisions. Nothing was too much effort and you were always willing to go that extra mile.   


Your management skills and thoroughness ensured we were confident that everything was under control.  Not worrying too much about the funeral was a real gift to us in those difficult days before Warren died.  We always felt you were truly committed to ensuring that everything on that very special day was delivered to perfection. In the end, it was indeed the perfect blend of celebration of life and mourning our loss.  It was exactly what we were wanting.


Your kindness and support to Kay was especially welcome and I truly thank you for that - you helped make her life bearable in those gruelling days.  I think she has rather a soft spot for you.  As do I.


I would also like you to pass my thanks on to Stephen who was great on the day, with thoughtful, warm and wonderful words.


With deep gratitude and kind regards,
