Funeral ceremonies must have no more than 30 people attending. This number does not include funeral staff. The actual number of people able to attend will depend on how many people can be safely accommodated within the premises with social distancing. St. Dunstans are not allowing funerals until at least 28th February 2021.
You may, sadly, be faced with the task of arranging a funeral for someone close to you.
Most funerals these days are held at a Crematorium, and the Parish Clergy are always willing to officiate there for you. Please make it clear to the Funeral Director if you wish the local Clergy to conduct a Church of England service. The Funeral Director will then contact us to make the necessary arrangements. In the case of a burial, the funeral service is very often held at St. Dunstan's Church before going to the cemetery. It is also possible to have a funeral service in the Church before a cremation. Again, please ensure the Funeral Director knows your wishes.
MEMORIAL SERVICES for the families of those who have died are held in November (Remembrance Sunday) and June. Where Feltham clergy have officiated at a funeral we will send an invitation to the family for one of the following Memorial Services.
Bereavement affects people in many different ways. For some the pain and sense of loss may even increase as the months pass, and it may not always be easy to share it with others. The Clergy are always ready to lend a listening ear, so please contact us if you feel that would help
