About funerals

Funerals held at St Peter’s are nearly always arranged via a funeral director who will then contact the vicar to agree a date and time. The clergy also take funerals for Norton residents at a crematorium.

The Church of England funeral service provides a way to hand a loved one into God’s care and we always work with the family to plan a suitable service which can include hymns, readings and music of your choice. Some people want to include a eulogy given by a family member or friend, others prefer the clergy to say the words for them.

At a time of loss it is important to create space to honour a person’s life and allow family and friends to say goodbye and we take great care to try and ensure this is done in the best way possible.

Thanksgiving for Life

Each autumn we hold a Thanksgiving for Life service to which we invite those who have had funerals through us over the past year. It is open to anyone else who wants to come and will be advertised. The service includes the reading of names of loved ones and lighting candles.
