Funerals

The arrangements for a funeral are initially made via the funeral directors [including fees]. In Tiverton, the two companies concerned are Walter H Squires & Son [tel 01884 252556] and Cross & Beale [tel 01884 252227], and they are well acquainted with our services and facilities.

Funerals generally take place in St Paul’s, on a weekday, followed by interment or cremation, but the entire service can alternatively take place solely at the cemetery [normally Tiverton Cemetery] or crematorium [in Exeter or Taunton]. Equally, it is possible to have a service of thanksgiving in church after a private family service. Further helpful information about funerals can be found here.

It is important to know that the bereaved family will receive reassuring support from a member of our Pastoral Team as well as a clergy visit. In November of each year, recently bereaved families are also invited to our thanksgiving service of remembrance.
