Church of England ministers can conduct funerals in four different venues. Read more about them on this page.
Church of England ministers can conduct funerals in four different venues:
- A church. This will normally be the church building where they are based.
- A crematorium chapel.
- A municipal or private cemetery: this might be in the cemetery chapel or just at the graveside
- A natural burial ground. Again, the service here could be in the chapel or meeting room of the ground, or at the graveside.

Neither the person who died nor the person organising the funeral is required to be a churchgoer in order to have a Church of England funeral. Read more about this here.
