Funeral Information

  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. Speak to your funeral director for more information.

St. George’s churchyard has for many years been closed for burials, although ashes can still be buried in the church grounds. The local authority can provide alternative places of burial and the minister can carry out the service there instead of the church or crematorium.

The following information is from the Church of England on planning a funeral the funeral service and selection of comforting psalms and prayers.
