Funerals

May they rest in peace – and rise in glory

The death of someone close is a very sad time and there is always such a lot to do when you least feel able to cope.  We are here to help you.

A service in church is for anyone, whether or not they have been regular churchgoers. Please call the church office on  01206 30 23 78; or your undertaker will contact us for you.

A funeral service may be held in All Saints’ or St James’, or at a crematorium, or in a cemetery chapel.  We will help you plan the service. This can be very simple, or more elaborate if you wish.  An organist is available.  The funeral service usually lasts about thirty minutes and can include music, hymns, prayers, short readings and possibly a tribute to the deceased.  Please let the us know if you, or any of your family or friends, would like to contribute to the service.

A funeral service is for everyone who knew the deceased, children as well as adults.  Often children can find it very helpful to be present.

Access is available for people with a disability.  Please let us know what you need.
