Bereavement and Loss

The death of a loved one can be a difficult time in anyone’s life. It is therefore really important to be able to say our goodbyes well. A Church of England funeral gives us the words and the space to help express our sense of loss, as well as pointing us to the God to whom we are entrusting our loved ones in that service.

Here at St Edward’s, our team will help you to prepare for the funeral service itself, as well as providing pastoral care as you continue to grieve. We also hold a Memorial Service once a year at which we can continue to remember those who have died.

If you are looking to arrange a funeral at St Edward’s Church or at the Crematorium, this will normally be done through your Undertaker but, if you would prefer, please do get in touch directly with the Parish Office on 01904 709111, and we will help you with the arrangements for the Service.
