When a loved one has died, the first people to contact are the Funeral Directors who will then contact us after they have met with you and discussed your needs. We will work very hard to make the process of arranging a funeral as straightforward as possible, meeting with you personally to help you through the preparations and working with the firm that you have chosen.
For Parish Register enquiries, see here.
Arranging a Funeral
you live within the ecclesiastical boundaries of Kirkham, St Michael,
you may wish to bury your loved one or inter their ashes in our
graveyard. You may then opt to have their names included in our Book of Remembrance (Form here)
Interment of Ashes
The casket containing your loved one's ashes may be buried in the Memorial Garden at the front of the Church. This is in a quiet, reflective area, but does not have headstones or plaques. However, the name of your loved one will be placed in the Book of Remembrance on display in church.
We have a second memorial garden on the north side of church, The Maurice Billington Garden of Remembrance. Within this garden, you can inter a casket and place a small headstone (in accordance with ecclesiastical law) in the plot where your loved one is buried.
