Funerals

The Minister of Falcon Lodge Methodist Church (or another minister in the Sutton Park Circuit) will always be available to offer support to the bereaved after a death in the family, and to conduct funeral services.

It is usual for the family to contact a Funeral Director in the first instance. The Funeral Director will then contact the Minister of your choice, so if you would like a funeral at Falcon Lodge Methodist Church or taken by our minister then you just need to tell the funeral director.

The Minister will meet the person making the arrangements – usually in that person’s home. This is an opportunity to discuss the form of service and to share memories of the loved one who has died.

For the funeral itself, there are three main possibilities:

  1. A service in the Church followed by committal at a cemetery or crematorium
  2. A committal at either a cemetery or a crematorium followed by a service of thanksgiving in the Church
  3. A service and committal wholly at the Crematorium

If you would like to speak to the Minister about any of these matters then please contact the Minister who will help you understand more about what is involved.
