If someone you know and love has died, a funeral led by a Church of England Priest can be held in church, in a churchyard, by a graveside, or at a crematorium. The Priest will be there to support you every step of the way.

First steps in arranging a funeral

After the initial news of the death of someone you knew and loved, there are some important things that need to be done.

  1. Register the death. There is some helpful guidance on this on the government’s births, marriages, and deaths advice page.

  2. Meet a Funeral Director. If you’re not yet sure which one to use, you can find one near to you on the National Association of Funeral Directors’ website, or on the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF) website

  3. Contact the Priest.
