The death of a loved one is always a difficult time, and we will want to give you the best support we can. The vicar, or one of the other clergy, will be happy to talk through planning the service, which may take the form of a funeral service or a requiem (Eucharist). We are always willing to conduct funerals for members of the congregation who have died, or for those who had a particular connection with St Bene’t’s or the parish. Please speak to the vicar in the first instance. If you would like one of the clergy to come and pray with someone who is near death, or offer the last rites, please get in touch. This can be a source of great comfort and strength to those nearing the end of their earthly lives.
Burial of Ashes
The churchyard at St Bene’t’s is open for the burial of ashes. Please contact the vicar if you would like to enquire about a burial: we will always try to say yes if there is a connection with St Bene’t’s or the parish, or if a close family member is already buried in the churchyard.
