|Funeral and Memorial Services
These often take place with the parish church, but on other occasion may occur at the crematoria in Chelmsford or Colchester. The availability of the family, minister and funeral directors are key factors in deciding the time a service may take place.
The initial contact with clergy is sometimes made directly by the family, but may happen through a funeral director. A minister then works with the family and funeral director to arrange the most appropriate day, time and location for a funeral service.
It is a tough time and, and within the resources available, we hope to provide both support and Christian hope.

Not all of the the church yards are open for burials. Those that are open have individual policies about burials. These policies are periodically reviewed.
