St Andrew’s and St Peter’s are both available for Christian funerals. The local funeral directors will be able to help you with all the practical arrangements but do feel you can contact the Rector when considering where you would like to hold your loved one’s funeral.
Please also contact the Rector if you need more information concerning the interment of a loved one’s ashes in St Andrew’s churchyard.
Each year we hold 2 memorial services at St Andrew’s for all who are bereaved. In the summer we meet in the churchyard (weather permitting). Near to Christmas we gather in church to remember loved ones and to light a candle.
Once a month we offer (free) bereavement advice and support at our afternoon drop-in, Stepping Stones. This is on the second Tuesday of the month from 2-4pm at St Andrew’s Church Hall. This is staffed by volunteers as well as employees of Stibbards Funeral Directors.
Have a look at this website for more information from the Church Of England.
There are very specific regulations covering the graves and memorials in our beautiful churchyard. You can read the information by downloading the document below.
