Church of England funerals

The Church of England is here for everyone. No matter where you live in this country, you're a parishioner and you're entitled to the services of your parish for funerals, baptisms and weddings.

Now, a brand new website gives helpful information all about Church of England funerals. So whether you want to organise a funeral, are unsure about going to a funeral, or even want to plan your own funeral, there is sound advice and good ideas.

At St Mary's, we provide funeral ministry for the people who live in our parish.

We also conduct funerals for people who have a strong connection with our church, for example as regular worshippers.

It's best to start by choosing a funeral director, who will then contact us to make the arrangements.

We understand that marking the end of a life is a deeply moving and often difficult time. Our faith in God gives us hope, even though the sorrow of grief is real, because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
