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 a funeral service in their local parish church, regardless of whether they attended church or not. If you have recently been bereaved you are welcome to contact us directly, but a good place to start is to contact a local funeral director. They will then put us in contact with you about organising the service.
