If you have suffered a bereavement please contact

The Revd Sarah Hancox on 01977 515686.

Off duty day: Friday (If your call is urgent, please contact our Team Rector, Revd Jeremy Trigg on 0113 805 0558)

A church funeral gives you the opportunity, in a very beautiful and holy setting, to say farewell to your loved one. You do not have to be a regular churchgoer to have a funeral service in your parish church and we have many years' experience of sensitive and compassionate care of families and individuals which we hope you will find both a comfort and a strength at your time of greatest need.

Even though St John's is closed for repairs Revd Sarah and our Team clergy and Readers can still offer funeral services in one of our neighbouring churches or in our Parish Hall.

It may be your choice to have a priest to conduct the funeral service of your loved one at the Crematorium and, again, we will be only too happy to assist with arrangements. 

For advice about funerals or interment of ashes, please speak to Revd Sarah on 01977 515686.

The Church of England also has an excellent resources section on funerals here http://churchofenglandfunerals.org/
