When someone dies, there's so much to think about and so much to organise. We understand how difficult this can be, but we can help you say your final goodbye in a way that really helps. Explore the link below to see how we can help you.
We generally expect that bereaved families will contact a Funeral Director in the first instance. They can help with a wide range of practical and administrative matters, as well as helping to fix a date and time for the funeral. They should let you know the range of charges that will apply, including for the funeral service. Once your chosen Funeral Director has confirmed when and where, we would contact you for a personal meeting.
A church funeral offers you not just a calm and reassuring ceremony, but also the friendship and support of the church family. The minister will visit you beforehand to talk about your loved one, and will be available for pastoral support in the weeks and months after the funeral.
If someone you know and love has died, a funeral led by a Church of England minister can be held in church, in a churchyard, by a graveside, or at a crematorium. The minister will be there to support you every step of the way. A Church of England funeral is available to all.
