If you have recently been bereaved, please accept our sincere condolences.
The Town Church would like to support you as much as we can at a time of such sadness and loss. If you would like a visit from one of the clergy or from one of our bereavement visiting team, please contact the Church Office (01223 790222 ).
You may be finding it difficult to think of all the things that need to be done when a close relative has died.
As regards the funeral, there are a number of things to be considered including church or crematorium and scattering or interment of ashes.
The usual starting place for advice would be the undertaker. The local firm of undertakers, who works closely with us are Messrs Philips and Sons, Telephone: 01444 482107, they can take on the organisation in liaison with the team at The Town Church.
The minister conducting the funeral will visit you, he will be able to guide you through what to expect and how to make the best choices with regard to the service. He'll help you understand the format of the service and ask if there are specific things you'd like him to talk about.
At The Town Church, we're here to help. Before the funeral and afterwards, we're available to everyone in our parish and we'll do our best to support you in any way we can.
