FUNERALS


funeral

As Christians we are encouraged to “rejoice with those who rejoice, and mourn with those who mourn.” We regard it as a privilege to be involved in funeral arrangements for a loved one who has died and we welcome the opportunity to walk with you as you face bereavement and all the challenges it brings.


Funeral Services can be very short and quiet, involving just a few family members, or they can be large events with many people coming to remember someone who has played a significant part in their life.


Please contact our Parish Priest who will be more than happy to meet with you and help you to plan what is felt to be an appropriate service.


People who live in the parish, or anyone who dies while visiting the parish, has a right either to be buried in the churchyard or to have ashes interred in our Garden of Remembrance.  Please see our sub-page for the regulations.


For those who live outside the parish there is no automatic right of burial or interment of ashes – this is something to be discussed with our Parish Priest.
