We’ll always be here to help you through one of life’s most difficult times.

A Church of England funeral is available to everyone, giving support before, during and after the service, for as long as it’s needed.

St Chad's has been a place where lives have been celebrrated for over 1000 years. St Mary's for only a little less than that. These Rochdale Churches are places for remembering.

The message at all Church of England funerals, wherever they happen, is one of hope. Although there is sadness because someone you know and love has died, in every Church of England funeral there will also be a message of hope in life after death.

Christians believe that when we die God promises that we will be with him in a wonderful place where death and pain are gone forever. Whatever the circumstances of death these words of hope are a great comfort to those who attend a funeral.

We die, we can’t see the person we love anymore, but Christians believe that through the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we will see that person again. It might be in very different form, in a very different way, but that is the Christian hope, and that is what everyone will get when they come to a Church of England funeral.

If you have just suffered a bereavment, please let us know so we can pray for you. And ask your funeral director to get in touch so we can arrange the funeral to suit your wishes.
