Funerals and Memorial Services

People often ask whether it is necessary for them to have been regular churchgoers in order to arrange a funeral or memorial service in St Martin's, or whether they can ask the priest here to conduct a service at the crematoriam or cemetery.

The answer is that of course you may have such a service and we will be pleased to help. Often in times of great need such as during a period of bereavement we suddenly find it necessary to contemplate the big questions of life and death and the Church is here to help. 
We are here to enable you to have a service or memorial that is tailor-made to your special needs and requirements. So please feel free to contact us and to ask for assistance. 

There are inevitably statutory fees that we are required to ask. They can vary slightly but typically for a service they are about £200 plus any extras such as organist's fees.

There's more information on the Church of England website 

You may also wish to inter the ashes of your loved ones in our Garden of Remembrance and perhaps also have an entry in our Book of Remembrance.  Even in the midst of this busy city our churchyard remains a place of quiet and reflection.
