We are sad to say that all funerals must be held within the Covid 19 guidelines.
Funerals at St Laurence’s, Long Eaton
Bereavement is one of the toughest things we have to face. If you have suffered bereavement and want one of the clergy of St Laurence’s to conduct the Funeral, you should contact the Vicar immediately. You should also contact a local Funeral Director as soon as possible. One of their staff will advise you about all the arrangements that need to be made for the Funeral to take place at St Laurence’s or at a crematorium. But it is essential that arrangements are made in consultation with the clergy at the earliest opportunity to ensure they are free to take the service.
Funerals in Church
A Christian Funeral is an occasion of sadness but also hope, because the Christian faith promises that all those who die as Christians will be raised with Jesus Christ. If you would like a Funeral to take place at St Laurence’s, you should contact the Vicar and a local Funeral Director. A Funeral at St Laurence’s may be followed by a committal at a crematorium or a burial in a cemetery or churchyard. The churchyard at St Laurence’s has been closed for many years, but it may be possible for Cremated Remains (Ashes) to be interred at a later date in its Garden of Remembrance.
