Funerals

Funerals at Minchinhampton

Funerals are usually arranged through the Funeral Director of your choice who will contact our parish office to book our building and clergy on your behalf. We will then contact you to arrange to visit to discuss the requirements for the service and to support you at this difficult time.

If you wish, as some people do, to discuss the requirements for your funeral ahead of time, please contact Christine in our Benefice Church Office on 01453 889004 (9am–1pm, Tuesday to Friday), or at admin@minchchurch.org.uk .

The Church of England website has some useful information about planning a funeral service, together with some psalms and prayers that may offer comfort to people who are bereaved.

If you are finding bereavement difficult following the loss of a loved one please contact the parish office to arrange to speak with a member of clergy.

If you are considering a memorial in the churchyard, your stonemasons will need authorization from us before they go ahead. There are also other restrictions on what is allowed in churchyards, and the churchyard regulations are available here.
