Christian faith tells us that ‘love is stronger than death’

We know arranging a funeral or memorial service can be an overwhelming time. Our experience means that we are able to walk alongside you, family and friends sensitively and patiently.

Our Christian faith tells us that ‘love is stronger than death’ and that there is more beyond this present time and earthly reality. We hold on to this, amid the sadness and sorrow, and stand with you as we shape the service together. Our aim is to listen and ensure that we are able to do as much as we can to accommodate your wishes for the day.

We want to get it right for you and we want the day to be memorable and special. We will take the time to be with you and offer pastoral care and support. St James’s will be there to place the memories of your loved one within a dignified and beautiful service.

Our downloadable leaflet includes further helpful information. To enquire about arranging a funeral or memorial service with us, contact David our Parish Administrator on 020 7292 4860 or by email below.


Mercédès Pavlicevic (1955-2018)

A funeral and Requiem Eucharist at St James’s.

Give rest O Christ, to your servant with your saints, where sorrow and pain are no more; neither sighing, but life everlasting.

All Souls’ Requiem Eucharist

Every year as the autumn nights draw in, we hold a Requiem Eucharist for All Souls’ Day. 

We invite relatives and friends who have lost a loved one to attend and light a candle in their memory. 

As part of the service, we read out the names of all those whose funerals and memorials have been held at St James’s that past year.
