A funeral is used to mark the end of a person's life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God's keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.
Everyone is entitled to either a burial service (funeral) or to have their ashes buried in their local parish churchyard by their local parish priest regardless of whether they attended church or not. Since All Saints' churchyard is closed, burials take place in the adjoining cemetery. Services are also conducted at the local crematorium.
Please do speak to us or email us using the Contact us page if you would like more information.
If this is all new to you and you do not know where to start, the Church of England Funerals website contains lots of helpful information.
The death of a loved one is a very difficult time. If you would like someone from the church to visit you, please get in touch.
We have a bereavement support group called ' Marcham Footprints'. If you would like to come along, please do get in touch. The group meets for lunch in the Crown Pub once every couple of months. It does not matter if you are recently bereaved or whether it was some time ago, you are very welcome.
