How to arrange a funeral at St. Swithun's


St Swithun’s is the parish church for the town and we are always available to host funerals. You don’t need to come to church to have a funeral at St. Swithun's, we are here to serve everyone.

This will be very important if your funeral is large as the crematorium only holds 50 people.


The clergy are also available to take funerals for you at the crematorium.

St Swithun’s also offers continuing pastoral care after a funeral

and we are always happy to talk to you whatever your circumstances.

St Swithun’s church is open every day from 9am-5.30pm

and there is a place to come and pray and light a candle.

People who have lost someone often find this a great comfort.
