The Parish of South Lafford

Following government guidance our church buildings are closed until further notice.

Sadly, funerals may now only happen at the Crematorium or at the graveside. Only immediate family members can attend (if the crematorium allows) – that is, spouse or partner, parents and children, keeping their distance in the prescribed way (this is true also for burial of ashes). No wake or gathering should be held following the funeral, and this should be scheduled for a later date.  

We recognise how difficult this will be for many and add to the pain of a loss.  Please contact Reverend Cameron Watt to discuss the possibility of a memorial service at a date in the future where more people can be present.

The guidance from the national church is available at:


A church funeral gives the opportunity to thank God for the life of a loved one, to say farewell and to commend the person into God's safe keeping, and to grieve with friends and family. The church wants to give you every support it can at this difficult time, both before and after the funeral. To arrange a funeral in one of our churches, or at a local crematorium, please contact your funeral director, or the Interim Minister (Revd Cameron Watt) a call on 07887 802784
