Funerals

How do I book a funeral? 

First contact the undertaker.  They will arrange a date for the funeral with our Minister and pass on your name and phone number. Our Minister will then phone you and arrange to see you.

Who can have a Christian funeral?

Anyone who lives in Brewood or Bishops Wood can have their funeral conducted by either the vicar or the reader. They do not need to have been a regular churchgoer. A member of the ministry team can conduct a funeral service either in the parish church or at the crematorium. Simply ask the undertaker to arrange this.

How do I make sure the funeral isn’t impersonal?

It is important that the funeral of your loved one reflects the person you remember. At your meeting, one of the ministry team will ask you about them, their life and what you remember as special about them. If there are particular readings or music that they liked, or that you want to remember them by, then these can be included in the service.
