Church Funeral Services to Honour Your Loved Ones Memory

The death of someone close to us plunges us into a period of mourning and the last thing we want to deal with is funeral arrangements. If a church service funeral is what your loved one would have wanted, and you believe it is the most fitting way to say goodbye, then let us make the arrangements for you.

Here at J Lawrence & Sons, we have been helping individuals and families organise funerals for many years. We understand that every service is different as it is meant to reflect the personality of the person that has passed away. We regularly arrange in church services for our clients as it best meets their requirements.

There is no doubt that you have put your trust in the right hands by choosing us to arrange church funeral services. If you have opted for a burial or a cremation, the service can be held in a church. However, if that is deemed inappropriate, it can be held in the chapels on site.

A church service funeral may be more fitting for your loved one if they followed a particular faith, however it is not a necessity. All of the decisions are made by you and those closely involved. Rest assured that we will not encourage you to steer one way or the other; it is a private and personal send-off for your loved one.
