A Christian funeral at St. Michael's gives local families time and space for a thoughtful celebration of the life of their loved one. This is open to families who live in Hamworthy.

If you would like a funeral in church or a local minister to take a funeral elsewehere you will need to be clear with your funeral director that this is your preference.

Some families are anxious about the cost of a church funeral, however a full church funeral will nearly always cost less than taking extra time at the crematorium.
