Coronavirus - Funerals during this crisis

As you will be aware all Churches in the UK are now closed until further notice due to the Coronavirus outbreak.  Funerals at this time are necessarily simple services at either the Crematorium or at the graveside and can be attended by the deceased parents and children only.  Our Bishops are aware that there will be many more who will mourn the loss of a loved family member or friend and who are even more saddened not have had the opportunity to join in giving thanks for the person's life. However we can all say some prayers privately at home and the Bishops have provided a wonderful and simple piece of private reflection that we can use at home on the day of a Funeral we can't attend.  You can download this from the link below.
