A Church of England funeral is available to everyone, giving support before, during and after the service. We have an experienced team of ministers who feel privileged to conduct the funeral of anyone who lived in our parish or worshipped at Christ Church.

Usually the undertakers will make arrangements with us on behalf of the next of kin, but if you are arranging a funeral independently then please contact us direct.

For 2019 the minister's fees for funerals are as follows:

 - Funeral service in church £195.00

 - Cremation immediately after a church service £28.00

 - Funeral service at the crematorium or in the cemetary £195.00

 - Minister's expenses £25.00

We do not charge for the funeral of a child under the age of 16.

We have a Garden of Remembrance in our churchyard in which cremated remains of parishoners can be interred. Please contact us for more information about this. The  fee for burial of cremated remains in the churchyard is £162.00.

We havea Remembrance Book in Church, which can be viewed at anytime when church is open.  We read out the names during our Servie on sundays, closes to the date of the anniversary of dying.  If you would like the name of your loved one to be included the fee is £14.00; send your email  to for more information.
