Funeral Preparation

Funerals are conducted at St Thomas à Becket church for the deceased who lived within the parish of Framfield, Blackboys and Palehouse Common.

The death of a loved one is a traumatic experience and some basic guidance will help in the planning of the funeral.

In the event of a death please contact a local funeral director who will then contact the minister to arrange a date for the service. The minister will then be in contact to discuss and plan the funeral service in detail. Our aim is to provide the very best of care so that the funeral is dignified and honouring to the deceased whilst providing support to the bereaved.

Various options are available for the service i.e.

  • Funeral service in church followed by burial in the churchyard.
  • Funeral service in church followed by cremation.
  • Cremation service followed by a memorial service in church (may be on the same or a different date)

A burial of ashes service is also available with internment of ashes in an existing family grave or separately in the Garden of Remembrance.
