When you lose someone for whom you may have to arrange a funeral for it can be a stressful and difficult time. So, we are here to help you make this most important journey as gentle as possible. There are generally two points of contact when arranging a funeral: the undertaker or funeral director, and the rector.
It is important that either the funeral director or the person arranging the funeral (who will generally be a friend or family member of the person who has died) checks that the church and the person conducting the service are available before any final arrangements are made. Working with the family, or person who is arranging the funeral if there is no family, the service will reflect the life of the person who has died, being both a lament and a celebration.
You do not have to be a member of the Scottish Episcopal Church to have a funeral with us. After the church service there will be a committal at the crematorium or graveside.
