In times of grief the Church is here to offer you support and comfort. We can help with funerals for loved ones whether they attended the church or not with funeral services taking place in either the Church or local Crematorium.
We work closely with local Funeral Directors and their skilled staff and are able to advise and support you on all of the different details concerning a funeral and later memorial monument.
When someone dies, a Church of England funeral is available for them in their own parish, whether they were churchgoers or not. Funerals can be held in the local church or led by a church minister in a cemetery, crematorium or green burial site.
Families who wish to have a cremation may decide to have the whole funeral at a crematorium. The service would take place in the building and the coffin would remain there afterwards for the cremation. A church minister can lead the whole service at the crematorium, or it’s possible to have part of the service at the crematorium and part of it in church.
There are several options if you choose to have a traditional burial in the ground. Burial locations that your church minister can come to include:
- An outdoor or green burial site
- In a cemetery or church yard
