A funeral marks the end of a person’s earthly life. Family and friends can come together to express their grief and to give thanks for the person’s life as we commend the person into God’s keeping. This service can be adapted according to the wishes of the deceased or the needs of the bereaved. 

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

If you need advice on planning a funeral or would like to speak to a vicar about bereavement please contact the Parish Office on 01562 822131 or [email protected], who will arrange for a member of the clergy to contact you. For enquiries about funerals at St Cassian’s, or the churchyard there, please contact [email protected].

In the first instance, a funeral is normally handled by the Funeral Directors who can liaise with the clergy on your behalf. 

In Kidderminster East we also offer our ‘Life after Loss’ Bereavement Café – click here for further details.
