Arranging a Funeral

We want to help you through this very difficult time with comfort, care, encouragement and direction.

Regardless of the deceased’s Christian faith, or lack of it, whether he or she was a regular worshipper or never set foot in church, every parishioner is entitled to have a Church of England funeral, either in the village church, at a crematorium or other location such as the green burial ground at Ketton.

The first thing to do is contact your chosen funeral director, who will guide you through the whole process. The funeral director acts as the co-ordinator for all arrangements, and he or she can therefore contact The Very Reverend Christopher Armstrong on your behalf, but please also feel free to speak to him directly on 01572 748634.

The Church of England also has a website with useful information.
