A funeral is the service marking the end of a person's life with us here on earth. We commend the deceased into God's keeping and give thanks for the life they lived. Whether a small or large occasion, family and friends come together to express their grief at the loss of their loved one.

It is an honour to serve those grieving and to try and offer comfort and help where we are able.

If you wish to speak with Fr Simon about a bereavement, do contact him by telephone on 01209 822862 or 07971 270615.
