This is a time of great sadness, confusion and grief. There is a lot of resources and information available to you to support you at this time. The Church of England offers help in how to arrange a funeral. https://churchofenglandfunerals.org.
You can arrange for a church service as part of the funeral, however there is no burial facility at St Martin’s. Funerals can be arranged for any day of the week, expect on Sundays.
Our vicar is happy to conduct a funeral service at either the crematorium or in St Martin’s with a committal at the crematorium afterwards. We are keen that at the end of a service, the family and others feel that a picture has been painted which accurately reflects the life of the person who has died. It is a sad time but we also need to celebrate their life. Bereavement is a difficult time for us all and as a church community, we are keen to support you and, if appropriate, advise you. Please contact us in the first instance.
