There is no easy way to lose someone. The death of a loved one is such a difficult time, and at St Alban's we are here to help.
Funerals are always arranged with a funeral director, and we can put you in touch with a firm who will support you professionally and sensitively. We can lead funeral services here in church, or at a local cemetery or crematorium. Anyone within the parish has a right to have their funeral at their local church, regardless of church attendance or not.
We will always spend time with you to make the funeral as personal as possible and provide ongoing pastoral care after the service.
If someone is nearing the end of their life, the vicar is very happy to spend some time with them and to pray with them. We consider it a privilege to accompany and support those approaching their death, and their loved ones.
Whatever we can do to support you at this difficult time, please be in touch, either with the vicar or through the parish office.
