More information on the Church of England funeral service can be found here.
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.
Please contact our Parish Priest, the Revd Sarah Dangerfield 01386 861669, or by email, if you would like to find out more.
