Funerals and Burials
The arrangements for funerals and burials are normally made through a Funeral Director in the first place who will then put you in touch with your local Church.
Nevertheless, the Church is here to offer help and support in times of need and crisis, so please contact the Rector, or another member of the clergy team, if you would like any support or advice.
It is possible to arrange a funeral service in any of the Benefice Churches, or alternatively one of our clergy will preside at the service in a crematorium (usually at Barham).
Woodnesborough, Northbourne and Tilmanstone churchyards are open for burials, and the churchyard extension at Eastry is adminstered by Eastry Parish Council. All five churches have a Garden of Remembrance set aside for the burial of ashes.
For any enquiries please contact the Rector, David Ridley, on 01304 619619;
