Funerals at St Philip, Chaddesden & St Mark, Derby


Death is not easy and we can never be entirely prepared for the death of our loved ones. Funerals can be overwhelming to arrange but they also give family and friends an opportunity to express their grief and give a sad yet fond farewell to their loved ones. Everyone is entitled to have a funeral at their local church whether you attend the church or not. A funeral service can take place at the church followed by a burial or cremation, at the crematorium or at the cemetery. Please speak to us. We are here to help.

Almighty Father, eternal God, hear our prayers for your servants 
whom you have called from this life to yourself. 
Grant them light, happiness, and peace. 
Let them pass in safety through the gates of death, 
and live forever with all your saints in the light you promised 

to Abraham and to all his descendants in faith. Amen.

Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord, 

and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May they rest in peace 

and rise in glory!


Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;

he leads me beside still waters;
he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake. 
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I fear no evil; for you are with me;
your rod and your staff - they comfort me. 
You prepare a table before me   
in the presence of my enemies
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me   
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
