To enquire about a arranging a Funeral, plesae contact our Priest-in-Charge, Revd. Simon Garwood at email@example.com, by phone 01376 573701 or at the Vicarage: The Vicarage, Church Street, Kelvedon, Essex CO5 9AL
It is often a very difficult time when a loved one dies, but the Church is here to help in any way that we can. Whilst the funeral directors will normally liaise directly with our Priest-in-Charge Simon regarding the funeral arrangements, please do feel free to contact him directly if you would like to speak to him at this time, or if the Church can help to make life just a little easier during what is often a very busy and stressful time. Simon’s contact details are below. Please let your chosen funeral director know your wishes, and especially if you would like Simon to take your loved one’s service at one of our two churches, or at a crematorium, or a combination of the two.
Please note that where burials are concerned, everyone who lives in Kelvedon or Feering is entitled to a full burial (or a burial of their ashes) in one of our two churchyards – St Mary’s Burial Ground, opposite St Mary’s Church in Church Street, and St Martin’s Cemetery (also known as Feering Cemetery) on Coggeshall Road, Feering, opposite Feering Primary School and Community Centre. Again, for more detailed information please speak both to your funeral director and to Simon.
We also hold an annual "In Loving Memory Service" for all who have been bereaved, whether very recently or some years ago. It doesn’t matter if the service wasn’t in church, or wasn’t taken by Simon, or wasn’t even in this locality: Details regarding the next "In Loving Memory Service" can be found on our Websie here: What's On
Both St Mary’s and All Saints’ are here to help you in any way we can. At our main Sunday services we always pray for those who have died recently, and also for their families.
There are two funeral directors serving our villages, although of course you are welcome to use any funeral director you wish:
