Everyone is entitled to a church funeral if they wish, regardless of whether they attended church or not. Please speak to your funeral director or local vicar for more information.
A Christian funeral acknowledges the closing of a human life on earth and the grief felt by those loved ones left behind, but it also speaks of the hope and faith that there is eternal life to be found through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and in the service we will commend your loved one recently departed to the eternal love and care of our Heavenly Father.
We will do our best to accommodate any funeral plans you may already have for your loved one, or if you are unsure, then we are able to help choose readings and hymns and assist in any way we can. More information can be found here:
