Funeral Services during the Coronavirus Crisis
Funeral services are now permitted in church with certain restrictions.
Please contact us on the Staff and Leadership page to find out how we can support you or speak to your undertaker.
The current guidance on funerals can be found here.
We are here to offer our help and support at this time of loss. It is always emotional and difficult when a loved one dies, even when we are expecting it. Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the days ahead.
Where to have the Service?
Whether you want to come into church, or go to the crematorium, one of our team of ministers will always be available to help you prepare and to take the service.
How do I plan it?
There is no ‘proper’ way to have the service, rather you want to have what is right for you and your loved one. We can advise on prayers and readings and hymns and how the service is conducted. Most families appoint a funeral director to help make the arrangements for them. We work closely with the funeral director and you to ensure all goes smoothly.
What about Burial?
Burials usually take place in the public cemetery at Bratton Road, Westbury. For the burial of ashes, there are various options, including interment in our churchyards and we would be happy to talk with you about this and to take the service.
