Your funeral director will normally make any funeral arrangements for you. However, the Rector will meet with you to help with the preparations and you are welcome to contact him at any time.

You can telephone Father Mark on 01629 582199 – or email him using the form on the contact Us page.

Anyone is welcome to have a funeral service at Saint Giles Church.

We hope to offer you support and comfort from the Gospel of Jesus Christ, an opportunity to give thanks to almighty God for the life of the person who has died, and to pray that the soul of our departed friend or relative may find mercy and peace with God in the kingdom of heaven.

It can be a great comfort to have a funeral in a familiar building close to where you live, where you may have worshipped, been baptised or married. Or, if you prefer, a service could be held at the cemetery or crematorium.

More information is available on the Funerals page of the Church of England website.
