Funerals

Church is an ideal place for a service to commemorate the life of a recently departed loved one without the pressure of the following service. Such a service can be before a short service at the crematorium or following the service in the crematorium.

 

St. Martin's is an ideal spot for a person's final resting place. The churchyard is now closed for new burials, but ashes can be interred in our gardens of remembrance.

 

The interment of ashes usually takes place following the Sunday morning Mass - ashes are processed out from the church with choir and altar party and laid to rest with a short service.

 

Joining the congregation in the hall for coffee allows the stone mason to set the memorial tablet in place then the family can add flowers to make this resting place special.
