If you need advice on planning a funeral, or perhaps would like to speak to a vicar about a bereavement, please e-mail or phone the Parish Office, at 01562 822131 or office@kidderminstereast.org.uk, who will arrange for a member of the clergy to contact you. However, bookings for a funeral are usually handled by the Funeral Directors who will liaise with the clergy on your behalf. 

A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express their grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping. This does not have to be a traditional affair and can be adaptable to the wishes of the deceased or needs of those bereaved. 

Everyone is entitled to either a burial service or to have their ashes buried in their local parish churchyard regardless of whether they attended church or not.
