Upcoming  Funerals within the Parish

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.

Upcoming Funerals
Attendance at Funerals - Owing to the Government restrictions on numbers currently in place, numbers attending should be minimised, and capped at 30 people. Guidance states that only the following should attend: members of the deceased person’s household, close family members, and close friends who have been invited by the family, keeping the total to 30.  Please do not try to attend if you haven’t been invited by the family.

 We extend our sympathy to the family and friends of the following parishioners:


David Miller who died this week. His funeral details have not yet been finalised.


Sympathy also to Betty Eccles and family on the loss of her brother-in-law Raymond
