Bereavement, Funerals and Memorial Services

Please contact us whenever you need to.

The clergy of the parish and members of our trained Bereavement Team are skilled and experienced in helping families to deal with the trauma of death and loss, At St. Martin’s, with our considerable musical and liturgical resources, we can help you to arrange an appropriate service – whether that is a Funeral or a Memorial Service.

We can, and want to, help before the point of death too – rather than being summoned after the event, we would much prefer to be called during times of serious illness when spiritual questions and anxieties can become particularly prominent in patients and their families. 

Support before and at the time of death is what we should all want for ourselves and our loved ones. Often the thoughtful, prayerful company of a member of the clergy or a trained visitor can help to guide people through challenging and uncharted waters as their life, or the life of their loved-one, draws to a close.

If you would like to discuss a visit, a Funeral or a Memorial Service please contact the Vicar, Fr Simon Evans.

You might like to note that St Martin's runs a drop-in session for those who have been bereaved and who wish to talk to someone about their loss. Please come along to the Bec Room in the Church Hall between midday and 2.00pm on the last Thursday of each month for an informal one-to-one conversation with one of our trained bereavement team.
