Dealing with the death a loved one can be a hard time, with many difficult feelings, and lots of questions and anxieties. Whether or not you (or the person who has died) are regular attenders, the Church can offer support and help during those difficult days. A service can be held in the Church and/or at a crematorium/cemetery.
A minister from the church will meet with you, talk you through planning the funeral service, and can help with any questions or concerns. If you would like to discuss the possibility of a Christian service, the first thing you should do is tell your funeral director/undertaker who will explain what to do.
There is useful information about planning for a funeral on the Church of England funerals site.
An application can be made to have the deceased’s ashes interred in St. Nicholas’ churchyard. Please contact the Parish Office for more details.
