Every year, at the beginning of November we hold a service at which we read the names of those who have died and whose funeral services have been conducted over the past 12 months in the parish.

This year so many folk have been bereaved. We will be creating places in church for you to leave the names of your loved ones between 2.00pm - 5.00pm on Sunday November 1st. Names need not be restricted to those who have died locally. Folk have lost family and friends across the country and many have been unable to attend funerals. we want our 'forget me not' event to be of help to all those who have suffered loss whether recently or many years ago.

If you prefer, you can send details of your loved one by email: use the 'get in touch tab'. Please give their name (and any name they were known by) and include the month and year of their death.

At 6.00pm on November 1st we will livestream on Facebook a short service at which names will be read out and candles lit in memory of them
