Preparing for my funeral

If you would like to arrange a funeral for a family member at St Bridget’s, these are the important notes for your information: 

  • You will need to contact an undertaker. They will be able to provide assistance with arranging the practical matters.
  • You will need to advise your chosen undertaken that you would like the service to be held in our Parish and which times and dates you feel would be suitable. The Undertaker will then contact the Church to ensure that the times and dates required are available and these arrangements should be confirmed in writing by the undertaker.
  • The undertaker will inform you of the fees and they should arrange for transportation for the priest to and from the cemetery/crematorium.
  • The Priest will need to arrange a meeting with the family to discuss the arrangements and find out if the family wishes to take an active part. This could include reading of chosen passages, delivery of the eulogy and choosing of hymns.
