My name is Mark Mc Cabe, and I have been married to my wife and best friend Irene since 1986, and we have two wonderful talented sons.


I was a Police Constable with the British Transport Police for twenty-six years, I worked as a Family Liaison Officer for fourteen years, working with bereaved families during Police investigations, including the case to identify body 115, the last unidentified victim from the Kings Cross fire. I worked as a Police trainer over a long period of time, delivering in house training. I also worked as a school liaison officer, delivering safety inputs to pupils of all ages, and wrote a children’s safety book.  


I left the Police in 2014 and retrained as a Trainer, and work with Pitmans Training delivering corporate training to businesses throughout Scotland on a freelance basis. I also work on a relief basis with Adults with special needs, which is both challenging and rewarding.


As a Humanist Celebrant my dedicated role is to work closely with you, to create a bespoke service that you will be proud of.




I attended my first Humanist funeral service in 2004, and I was amazed that the service was all about the deceased person in his families own words. It was an uplifting experience for everyone, there were tears, and laughter, stories old and new, it was clear this was a celebration of a life lived. This sums up my approach in helping you plan a loved ones Funeral service.   




This is your big day, and your wedding celebration is a blank canvass. You both are the artists so bring your own unique style and colour to this day and paint a picture that your family and friends will talk about for years to come, and you will remember with a big happy smile.
