How do I arrange a funeral?

If you are contacting us because someone in your family or close to you has died, please accept our prayerful condolences. The first few hours and days after the death of a loved one can be numbing and confusing.

If you haven’t done so already, you will need to make contact with a local funeral director and ask them to make the necessary arrangements for you.

If you would like to hold a funeral service in one of our churches, or for one of our staff team to conduct a funeral at a crematorium, please contact us through the website, or the Group Administrator by phone (01275 331061).
