I find taking funerals an enormous honour, and I welcome requests for funerals and also inquiries regarding burials and burials of ashes. We are happy to take funeral services in our churches or at the crematorium or elsewhere, and we would work with you to make the service exactly what you wanted. I am also used to people asking to talk through their plans for their own funeral sometime in the future.
St Andrew’s has no churchyard or garden of remembrance for the burial of ashes, but St Peter’s has both space for full burials and a garden of remembrance for burying ashes. The churchyard is a beautiful, quiet spot, and it is well maintained by some wonderful volunteers.
