Caitlin HannaganAfter the death of our Mother I reached out to Yasmin to arrange a ceremony for our Mum was that nothing of the ‘ordinary’. Our Mum was nothing that aligned with ‘tradition’, She was her own woman and would of never wished to be whisked away in a hearse, or her final hurrah to be surrounded by those who she loved so dearly in a dark & dismal setting. Yasmin set up the ceremony in a beautiful pocket on a secluded beach, and made everyone feel so welcome.. Every single thing that was arranged for the day was like I had done it myself, it was exactly how i envisioned and dreamed of it to be. For days following the ceremony I had many people come up to me and say ‘the ceremony was so beautiful, it was absolutely what your Mum would of wanted.. and I’ve decided that’s how I want my life to be celebrated’ For what was supposed to be a very heavy day for us kids (there’s 4 of us) and our Dad, turned out to be something so special.. We will carry the memory of our Mother’s farewell as such a beautiful & sacred moment in our lives, all thanks to Yasmin. We will forever be grateful for the lengths Yasmin went to, to ensure no stone was left un-turned. Our Mum was with us, watching with joy. I just know it. Again, thank you from the bottom of our broken hearts xx
Linda BiffinYasemin is a beautiful lady who helped my family and I celebrate the life of my husband. She created an amazing space for us to truly honour and remember an incredible life. Even though it was a time of sadness and grief for my family, the service and atmosphere was uplifting and joyous. I am so very grateful to Rites of Passage Funerals and Yasemin for their support and incredible vision. Thank you.

From the moment we made contact with Rite Of Passage Funerals we knew we had made the right decision. The effort they made to truely understand what was important to all family members made our experience effortless.
Yasemin went over and above in all areas, naturing and keeping us informed of all the stages and requirements required prior, during and after the passing of our mother, even assisting in tasks that where outside of her agreed responsibilities
We could not recommend them more.
From the moment we met Yasemin, we knew we’d made the right choice! Yasemin is a gentle soul, offering a beautiful tailored approach to funerals. She helped us plan the most special service for Mum – simple, personal & full of love. She took care with every detail – & took care of us. We have cherished memories of this day
I had the privilege of working with Yasemin and photographing the work that she does with her incredible business, Rite of Passage Funerals. Yasemin’s attention to detail, deep love for the families she works with and her beautiful kind nature was amazing to witness. I have been to many funerals over the years but have never seen one put together so beautifully and thoughtfully in a way that honours someones uniqueness and life so well. Amazing work!
Yasemin is truly an angel… her consideration, empathy, kindness and professionalism was out of this world! During what was a very sad and stressful time for our family, Yasemin brought a sense of calm and peace, nothing was too much trouble and everything was organised seamlessly and the celebration and farewell we had for my grandfather was as special and unique as he was.
My experience working with Yasemin and Rite of Passage Funerals on assisting myself and my family with my dad’s funeral and ceremony was incredible. Having Yasemin gently guide us through choosing a ceremony that dad would have been really proud of.
She continued to assist me thereafter with healing contacts for my mum and me.
Yasemin you are a treasure; so grateful to have found you. You gently listened to all our thoughts and created a beautiful day and memories that we will all cherish as we hold the memory of our dad in our hearts of ever. So grateful x
The funeral of my brother-in-law in May by Rite of Passage Funerals was perfect. They provided the service that we required and carried it out with empathy and great consideration for the people concerned. If it is possible to have an enjoyable funeral, that made a joyous day, then it was. Every attention had been made to detail so that it ran seamlessly, looked wonderful and provided a memorable service of celebration. Thank you Yasemin. A day to remember for all the right reasons.
Yasemin was an absolute angel at this difficult time. She helped guide us through the process and educated us on all our options for my wife’s funeral, and the end result was beyond anything we could have imagined. She is professional, compassionate and has a modern view on funerals – something we really wanted. I would highly recommend her. Thank you Yasemin for all you did for my family.
I cannot recommend Yasemin and Rite of Passage funerals highly enough. It was so comforting to have such a gorgeous soul help our family during a very difficult time. We loved the different approach to funerals that Yasemin was able to offer us as a traditional funeral wasn’t for us. Thank you and keep doing your brilliant work. xx
Yasemin is the most amazing and enjoyable person to work with. She has been so supportive and knowledgable on all matters concerning pre-planning our funerals. It’s never too early – who knows what can happen. I am so thankful for her guidance in helping me and my 75 year old mother-in-law overcome such a difficult subject to discuss. Totally and utterly recommend starting with the Spiritual Will workshop. Thanks again Rite of Passage for being different to all of the others. The world needs more. x
