A funeral is used to mark the end of a person's life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God's keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.
All three of or churches have an 'open' churchyard, but space is limited. Every parishioner has a right to be buried, or have their ashes buried in their churchyard. Others with a significant link to the parish may be buried at the discretion of the Rector and churchwardens.
We seek be as supportive and helpful as we can to those suffering the loss of a loved one. Please speak to the Rector if he may be any assistance.
