We understand that the death of a loved one can be a difficult time and we always make every effort to accommodate families.
If you live or have lived (prior to death) in the Parish of All Saints, Branksome Park you are normally automatically entitled to have your funeral at All Saints Church (subject to availability).

If your relative does not currently live in the Parish of All Saints but they had an association with All Saints, or, for example, their spouse or another relative is buried in the churchyard of All Saints, it is likely their ashes will be able to buried in the graveyard.
