The loss of a loved one is always a sad experience and we aim to make funerals as helpful and supportive as possible.
Funerals can be conducted by the Vicar (or one of his colleagues) in church or at a local crematorium, or many people choose to use the church for the main part of the service, followed by the final committal at the crematorium or St Andrew’s Burial Ground.
A church funeral allows a little more time to enable relatives and friends to begin their mourning and for an expression of thanksgiving for the life of the deceased.
The first step in booking a funeral is usually to ring your local funeral director, who will contact the Vicar for you. The Vicar will always visit before a funeral, to offer help and support and to discuss details of the service.
