When a loved one dies, it is a time of sadness and often of pain.

We hope that you will find comfort in the friendships and family you have, and also the ministry of the Parish team.

When someone is bereaved, the mind is so full of varying emotions that it is at times difficult to remember things. These notes are offered as an aide memoire.


Harnham Parish can provide a funeral service within our church buildings of either St Georges or All Saints.

The purpose of the service is to give thanks for the life of the departed, to comfort one another in grief and to commend the deceased to God. The service also includes a tribute and prayers. It can also contain hymns or music played on CD, according to each family’s needs.

We can also offer a funeral service that offers Holy Communion, if it was the custom of the family or deceased to receive Holy Communion.

The Parish team are happy to help with any of the organisation of this service.

The service can also take place at the Salisbury crematorium, with the Parish priest leading the service.

The Services are usually arranged through the undertakers.
