A funeral service is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for a life lived, and commend the person into God’s keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.
A funeral can take place in the church at Haxey or Owston Ferry, followed immediately by a burial or cremation elsewhere, or it can take place entirely at a crematorium. If you wish you can arrange to have a private funeral at a crematorium and a memorial or thanksgiving service in church later.
It is always distressing to
lose someone close to you. The church communities can help and support you
through what is bound to be a difficult time. If you would like our
support please give me a call (01427 753004)
