The Parish of Ockbrook & Borrowash
"Making Christian disciples, who love God, love one another, and live out God's love in the world"


From the moment you are in touch with us, throughout your loved one’s funeral and for as long as you need us afterwards, we are here for you.

At the end of a life, and in a time of grief, many people gain strength and comfort from God. We can offer a Christian funeral service which will include music, prayers and reflections on the life of your loved one.

We offer a Christian service in church or at the crematorium or graveside. It is usual that the deceased has either been living in the parish, or has had strong connections with the area.

Please contact us through your funeral director.

Funerals during the current COVID-19 Pandemic can be attended by a maximum of 30 people, and it is advised that only close friends and family attend. Linked ceremonial events such as stone settings and ash scatterings can also continue with up to 15 people in attendance. Anyone working is not included. Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble. For further information please visit the following:

Above information is correct as per 1st November 2020 and is under constant review and is subject change as the lockdown restrictions change.

Please contact us and our vicar will be in touch.

Service of Hope and Remembrance – Most years we plan this service and we invite all the families for whom we have taken funerals to a special service of remembrance, where we create space for quiet reflection, prayer, the lighting of candles, reflective music and a short address.
