Please contact us if your marriage is to take place at another church, but you live within the parish of St Giles and require your Banns of Marriage to be called at St Giles.

FUNERALS

The death of a loved one can be a distressing time for both families and individuals. Many people choosing to hold a funeral service at the church find it a great comfort where they can enter the next phase of bereavement. You can find further information on organising a funeral on the Church of England website.

If the deceased formerly lived in the parish and you would like to arrange a funeral at St Giles’ church, please speak with your chosen undertaker who will contact us. Enquiries to St Giles for a suitable date and time for a funeral service are normally made through the Funeral Director. Once the date and time have been agreed, the Funeral Director will ask the priest to make contact with the family of the deceased.
