Funerals

A funeral is used to mark the end of a person's life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God's keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.

Everyone is entitled to either a burial service (funeral) or to have their ashes buried by their local parish priest regardless of whether they attended church or not.  Services in the church can be combined with a burial in our churchyard, with a cremation at Octon, York or Scarborough or a “green”burial at the Mowthorpe Independent Garden of Rest, Terrington.
