FUNERAL MINISTRY IN THE PARISH OF FAWKHAM AND HARTLEY

   

Location of the Service

We encourage you to hold the funeral service in Church. This means that there will be no time pressure in holding the service, and it also means that many local friends will be able to attend. We also hope you will find comfort in the real sense of God’s presence in our beautiful historic churches which have been prayed in for generation after generation, stretching back centuries.

These days the majority of people opt for cremation. You may wish to consider whether you would like the service in church before or after the cremation. The advantage of having the cremation service first is that this can be a small and private service attended by just family members and then you can travel back to the church to join with the wider family circle and friends to celebrate the life of your loved one. You can then go straight from this service to whatever reception you may have planned and continue to share in memories and friendship.
