Funerals

"Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust, in sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ."

The church has been here in the parish for generations supporting families through one of the most difficult times in life.
A funeral service marks the death of a loved one, and is the opportunity for family and friends to express their grief and to remember a life.  A Church of England funeral held in church and/or a crematorium allows us to give thanks for your loved one in a way that gives both comfort and hope.  Our clergy will meet with the family and discuss your requirements such that the funeral service is tailored to your needs and preferences.

Next of kin should first contact a Funeral Director and simply speak to them about a service with a Church of England minister.  Our vicar James, who conducts most funerals is:

Revd James Halstead
Telephone:  01457 762268  e-mail:  vicar@ (all our email addresses* end with mottramparish.org.uk) or use his contact form.

*We've broken up all the email addresses on this website, for spam protection.

Click here for the helpful Church of England funerals website, which has a wealth of information about the service itself, what makes it special, and all you need to know about organising and attending a funeral.

 

The church is also here to offer support in bereavement after the service and for as long as is needed.  Please contact James (contact details above).

Once a year, usually in November, Mottram Church also holds a poignant Memorial Service to remember all those who have died in recent years. Nearer the time invitations will be sent to all families whom we have accompanied through a funeral in the previous year.
