Lianna Champ Managing Director & Founder

Managing Director & Founder

Diploma in Funeral Directing, Certified Embalmer, Advanced Grief Recovery ® Specialist, Member of the Institute of Civil Funerals and Author of ‘How to Grieve like a Champ’  In a nutshell … A Funeral whizz!

Determined to become a funeral director from the age of nine, Lianna has spent over three decades caring for those who have been bereaved or suffering with unresolved grief. Instead of providing a purely practical solution to death and funerals, Lianna wanted to create a holistic experience that would ease the pain of losing someone and help the grieving process.

A life dedicated to a single career has made Lianna an expert in grief and it’s this knowledge that permeates the entire Champ experience.

From your first interaction with Champ Funeral Services, you’ll detect Lianna’s passion for uniquely celebrating the lives of those we have lost and her desire to comfort and guide those left behind.

Lianna’s book ‘How To Grieve Like A Champ’ was published in June 2018 and is available on Amazon and at all good bookshops. She also writes many educational articles on the subject of grief and funerals for various local and national media publications.
