The Memorial Garden at the back of the church is an attractive secluded area ideal for quiet reflection and prayer. It is consecrated for the burial of ashes, and loved ones can also be remembered with a plaque and an entry in the Memorial Book in church. To arrange for a burial of ashes or an entry in the Memorial Book, please contact the Vicar.
Family members often bring flowers in memory of loved ones, and we provide a range of vases for these to be put in.
All Souls Day service
Around All Souls Day (1st November), we hold a service in memory of all the departed, to which we invite family members of all in the parish who have died recently. It is a quiet and moving occasion, much valued by all who come.
Covid-19: Garden still open
Even during lockdown, the Memorial Garden is open as usual, 9am to 4.30pm daily. You are welcome to visit to tend to memorials, or for private prayer. There are several benches around the Memorial Garden and Garden of Remembrance. We ask that you observe distancing guidelines.
