Funerals

We are here to support bereaved families arrange a funeral service or burial of ashes.

Thank you for your patience and putting up with the limitations that have been in place around services marking life events. You can now have funerals in church. There are still restrictions on congregation sizes and what can be done. Please contact us if you would like to discuss funeral arrangements.

To make an enquiry about a funeral matter, please contact us.

  • help you understand how the burial site is managed in the first year and longer term.
  • signpost you to useful resources including using our churches in grief, for space, or reflection.
  • invite you to one or more special events in the year after the death
