Funerals are important occasions for the bereaved, and also
for the community. The parish church is available for anyone for their funeral
– be they regular churchgoers or not. Arrangements will always be made to suit
the person we are remembering.
Burial in the churchyard is also there for anyone from the
parish. That would normally be the case, as well, for any with connections back
to the parish, but who have moved away. In other circumstances, it might be
appropriate to make specific arrangements in advance.
Memorial stones can be placed on graves in memory of the
person. There are guidelines within which permission can be given for specific
wording and style. Further details can be obtained from undertakers,
stonemasons and the clergy.
