The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Many of us are bewildered by approaching death and confused by the possibilities presented to us when we are faced with the need to plan a funeral.
If you are recently bereaved we do offer you our condolences and hope that we may be able to offer you our support and help at this time.
After reading here, you may find it helpful to visit www.churchofenglandfunerals.org – it is a very good website full of information to help you in advance, during or after a funeral.
As a first step at the time of death you may have been in touch with a Funeral Director. The director should guide you and usually contact the church on your behalf to make arrangements for a funeral whether that is to be in our churches or at a Crematorium.
You are also of course welcome to get in touch with us at any time if you wish.
The Monsell Room (adjacent to the church), is available for gatherings of up to 50 people following a funeral service. Please contact the Monsell Room Bookings Secretary for further information.
Special All Souls Service to remember loved ones
Every year on All Souls there is a special evening service held in church, candles are lit and the names of those who are to to remembered are read out in the prayer time. Those who have been bereaved in the past year will be invited and are encouraged to attend.
