Funerals and Burials/Burials of Ashes

We consider it our privilege to be able to assist the bereaved within, or closely associated with, our parish.  Jim Perryman and Audrey Rowberry are both available to help with offering compassion and spiritual guidance, with the arrangements for funeral or memorial services, and with the interment of ashes within the churchyard.

We will always do what we can, within the regulations that cover such issues, to fulfil the wishes of the family or of the deceased.  A church service is always possible, as is the interment of ashes poured within the Garden of Remembrance, for any who have a link to the parish, but there are stricter regulations related to those times when we can offer burial of coffins or caskets of ashes.

We are also bound by regulations regarding the placing of memorials within the churchyard meaning that we have limited delegated authority to give permission without the need to refer to the Diocesan authorities.

To help you in your thinking or planning, you can find a selection of the regulations below.
