Funerals

We are always ready to help you through this difficult time.  Simply call us and we will respond and talk about your needs and preferences.

On the Day?

Traditionally the service follows a pattern on the day of the Family and Friends arriving ahead of the deceased and the service begins once you loved one has arrived and is in position at the altar.

The Night Before

We can also provide a "Lying in State" over night facility which many families find more comforting and intimate.  On the evening prior to the funeral service the following day your loved one is brought into church to some of their favourite music and a short service and prayers are said.   We have found that one of the most popular songs is "Coming Home" which many will remember from the Hovis adverts.  The tune comes from the New World Symphony.

We are Here to Help

The Vicar and Churchwardens are always ready to help you and make this day special for you and your loved ones.  Feel free to discuss your preferences with our team for the service and committal.   After the service and committal it can be a difficult time for many, please remember we are still here to help, you are not alone.
