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.

​​

Everyone is entitled to either a Christian burial service (funeral) or to have their ashes buried in their local parish churchyard by their local parish priest, whether or not they were churchgoers.

Speak to Revd Ros Roberts for more information.

When somebody you love dies, there’s a lot to think about and it can feel overwhelming at the time.

There are some useful resources below that may help you start your thinking about the service for your family member or friend.

 

But don’t worry – Ros will not expect you to ‘know all the answers’.  she and the assistant clergy are there to help you plan the service and to support you in your loss.

The church is open during the day if you wish to come in to pray, sit in peace and quiet or light a candle. You can also light a candle on the web-link below.

 

There are regulations on the sort of memorials that are permitted in churchyards. You can find out more in the leaflets below as well as helpful resources for people experiencing bereavement or loss.
