WHAT IS A FUNERAL ABOUT? A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.
Everyone is entitled to either a burial service (funeral) or to have their ashes buried in their local parish churchyard by their local parish priest regardless of whether they attended church or not.
St Peter’s is now a closed churchyard however the Revd Kelvin Woolmer (347563) or one of the churchwardens will discuss the alternative places of burial and different services available to you. Please contact them directly on 01234 360301.
