We know that when a loved one dies there is much to be done in making arrangements for a proper ending of life, grieving for the loss, and in making practical arrangements for the future practicalities of living. We are here to help and can offer support at the time that you need it most. Our clergy are happy to take a funeral for anyone who was living in the parish, the person does not have to have been regarded as religious or have attended church. If you would like a personal service which includes prayer for yourselves and the person who has died, then it sounds like a service led by one of our team is right for you. The service can be at a crematorium or in church and we can also offer a service for the burial of ashes of your loved one.
The Church of England has developed a website with many helpful pages and this link will take you there. You can even light a virtual candle for your loved one.
Funeral Directors will also provide support to you and those around you as you make appropriate funeral arrangements. They will often liaise with us and help to make arrangements for you. Once we have set a date and time for the funeral, we will arrange to meet with you and your family to start planning the service with you.
If you are struggling following bereavement and would like some support, please contact our Rector Alex on 0151 625 1052
