Funeral

Funerals and Thanksgiving Services

Funerals and Thanksgiving Services frequently take place at St Andrew’s and we would be pleased to discuss how we might help you through what can be a difficult and confusing time. As Christians we believe that death is not the end of our story but that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ offers us hope for the future. We would work with you and your family to plan a service which reflects the person who has died, any wishes or instructions they might have expressed, whether the service takes place at St Andrew’s or at a Crematorium.

Our churchyard is now closed for new graves as there is no more space, although if your family has an existing grave it may have space for a further burial. A Garden of Remembrance has been laid out in the churchyard where ashes can be scattered and the person commemorated in a Book of Remembrance in the church.

The website https://churchofenglandfunerals.org/ is very helpful in thinking about a Christian funeral and coping with bereavement.

Please contact the Parish Office in the first instance and we will be pleased to give you further information.
