st mary's ferndown



As your local church we are always here for you and especially at those times in life when you need us most. Losing a loved one  is one of the most difficult and traumatic of life's experiences and we consider it our privilege to come alongside you at such a time.

Our church building can be used for funeral or thanksgiving services and our clergy can also take services at local crematoriums or cemeteries. The churchyard of All Saints, Hampreston is available for burials and for the internment of ashes for those who reside in the Hampreston Benefice, which includes the Parish of Ferndown. Whatever you choose to do to celebrate the life of your loved one we will help you every step of the way.

Funerals are normally arranged with the Church via your funeral director, but if you have any immediate queries we would be pleased to assist you, please call us on (01202) 897087.
