We offer you our sympathy for your loss. Grief is never easy and we at Christ Church want to do all we can to support you at this difficult time and to help you plan a service to remember your loved one in an appropriate and personal way.
The first thing you need to do is to contact a local Funeral Director to let them know that you wish to have the funeral taken by a member of the Christ Church clergy. They will then co-ordinate dates and times with all those who need to be involved. The minister taking the funeral service will then make arrangements to meet you and plan the service together with you.
You may wish to hold the service at Christ Church, followed by a Committal at a cemetery or crematorium, or you may wish to have the whole service at a cemetery or crematorium. We can help you with both of those options.
For further information on a funeral service at Christ Church, or to receive support in your loss, please contact the Vicar.
