Christian funerals are public opportunities for people to come together to remember and to give thanks for the one who has died, to share in their grief, and to commit the departed to God’s keeping. Services at St. Martin’s can be funeral services with the coffin in the church, or memorial services after a burial or cremation. Anyone who lives in the parish of St Martin’s is entitled to a funeral service here, and we are also happy to conduct funerals for those with a close connection to St Martin’s.
From the moment you are in touch with us, throughout the funeral service, and for as long as you need us afterwards, we’re here for you. The Church of England is in every community, and has been helping people mark the end of life for generations. For more details, including a guide to help you plan a funeral, and answers to lots more questions, please see the Church of England’s Funerals website.
