If you are viewing this page after a bereavement we are very sorry for your loss. We hope this page may help you as you plan but please do speak with Revd Nikki to talk and support you through this difficult time.
There are a number of options to consider when planning for your loved ones ceremony:
A funeral service and committal at the Crematorium
A committal service at the crematorium followed by a thanksgiving or memorial service in church (either on the same day or at a later date)
A funeral service in Church followed by a committal at the crematorium
A funeral service followed by burial in the churchyard or other cemetery
Burial of Ashes Ashes of your loved one can be interred in the churchyard; the option of scattering of ashes in the churchyard is not available due to churchyard regulations.
Parish Churchyards All Parish Churchyards/graveyards are regulated as to the type of tombstones, ornaments, etc. that can be used. Artificial flowers are not allowed save for poppies in November and Christmas wreaths during December. The PCC's in this Benefice are aware that it is not always easy to regularly place and attend to fresh flowers and have not therefore enforced the regulation. However, artificial flowers do become faded and dirty after some weeks and the PCC will remove any artificial flowers that no longer look pleasant.
