A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world and to commend the person into God's keeping.


In the sad event of the death of someone who is close to you, it is usually the case that you should make your first contact with a local funeral director who will guide you through everything that needs to be done, including liaising with the church to arrange the date and time of the service.
