During this time our church and church buildings remain closed.
Funerals are still taking place but without a service of remembrance for the deceased in the Church. We are more than happy to arrange a service at a later date.
We would encourage people to hold their services in
Church, whenever possible. At Church there is no restriction on time and there
will be room for as many as want to come. We have facilities for playing
recorded music if that is desired. If there is to be a Cremation, the whole
service can be held in Church, if that is what is preferred. We also conduct
services at the Crematorium.
Whoever is taking the service will help you to plan it, so that it meets your family's needs. Someone will also keep in touch after the service.
Each year in the Spring we hold a special service for all who are mourning. Invitations go to all who have had family funeral services in the previous year, but it is an opportunity for anyone to remember those who have died. The date of the 2020 service will be announced in due course. Churches Together in Camberley organise a special Carol Service for the Bereaved; this will be hosted here at St Michael's and will be in December 2020.
Our Churchyard is well maintained, with the generous support of Surrey Heath Borough Council. Space is becoming limited, and we have now received permission to reuse graves from the 1930s.
We have an extensive database of burials, going back to the 1920’s. If we can help with inquiries, please email us.
