Funerals

Funerals are now able to be held in church buildings in line with the Government’s latest guidelines.  Small funerals, led by a Church of England minister can also be held in a churchyard, or by a graveside, or at a crematorium. This does not mean that all churches are now open and able to host funerals so you are advised to contact your local church to find out what they are able to offer. You can find the contact details of your local church on the A Church Near You website. Simply type your postcode into the search box.

We recognise how difficult this time is for anyone who has lost a loved one. You may wish to discuss with your vicar or minister the possibility of a memorial service at a date in the future where more people can be present.
