Funerals

We are sad …. We make your funeral very personal and an opportunity, to truly celebrate the unique character of your loved one, which we hope will enable you to encounter God’s love and comfort at your time of grief.

A funeral is used to mark the end of a person's life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God's keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.

Everyone is entitled to either a burial service (funeral) or to have their ashes buried in their local parish churchyard by their local parish priest regardless of whether they attended church or not.

This section includes information on planning a funeral and the funeral service. Plus a selection of comforting psalms and prayers.
