Funerals

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. 

Speak to the Parish Office for more information.

 

The Church of England offers guidance and information on planning a funeral and the funeral service. Plus a selection of comforting psalms and prayers.
