Funerals

Residents of Wellesbourne or Walton are entitled to a Christian funeral in their Parish Church and to be buried in the churchyard.  Alternatively, our funeral ministers will gladly conduct a funeral at Oakley Wood Crematorium for residents of either parish.

To arrange a funeral at one of the churches, contact the funeral director of your choice who will make the service arrangements for you, and our funeral ministers will be in touch with you to prepare for the service.  If you wish, do contact the vicar, Revd Kate Mier, directly.   

There is a new Garden of Remembrance in St Peter’s churchyard for the interment of ashes.  Ashes are buried beneath the grass without any marker, but the names of those interred are recorded in the Book of Remembrance in the church and optionally on a memorial in the garden. For more information about the new GoR see New GoR.  A memorial wall has been erected in the old GoR inscribed with names of those whose ashes are interred in the garden and whose relatives wished to have the names recorded.     

Memorials

Please note that only certain stones, styles and inscriptions are allowed for headstones.  Both churches follow the regulations of the Diocese of Coventry with regard to headstones
