When a loved one has died, the people you need to contact first are the Funeral Directors. They will contact us after they have met with you and discussed your needs and 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.

Interment of Ashes
First, you can have the casket containing your loved one's ashes 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 a Book of Remembrance, which is held in Church.
Second, we have a memorial garden on the north side of Church, named '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.
