Arrange a funeral

Arrange a funeral

There are generally two points of contact when arranging a funeral: the clergyperson who is going to be conducting the service itself and the funeral director.  In all cases, the first point of contact should be the local clergyperson.

It is important that the person who is arranging the funeral checks that the person conducting the service is available before agreeing a time with the funeral director.  A clergyperson will be able to advise on the content of the service using resources drawn from the Book of Common Prayer.  It is possible for a funeral service to take the form of a communion service.
