Preparing for a funeral can be a difficult thing to face. At this time of your loss, we would like to offer you our condolences. Please know that each day those who have died are remembered at every Mass, as are those who mourn. I hope the Church’s prayer will be a comfort and consolation for you at this testing time.

Please do make contact with Canon Alan, our parish priest, to discuss the funeral arrangements. He has a lot of experience of preparing and celebrating the Funeral Liturgy of the Church. He welcomes your suggestions and will consider how he can then best prepare the Liturgy in line with the Church’s tradition, and respectful of your particular circumstances.

On this page, you will find information that will help you to make decisions about what you want in the funeral including readings and hymns.
