If you would like to hold a funeral at St Chads Church or if you would like to speak to someone following a bereavement please contact our Vicar Rev’d Jonathan Nicholas 0121 329 2995 or e-mail

You can find our location details here.

You do not have to be a church member to hold a funeral service at St. Chad’s; the church may be more suitable if you are expecting many people.

If you feel you would like to hold a funeral service at St. Chad’s let your funeral directors know, they will make the arrangements.  The curate will spend some time with you before the funeral. He will offer advice, if you need any, and discuss the sort of service that you would like.

There is a book of remembrance in which you can ask for the name to be recorded. The book is opened in church on the same day every year. A special service of commemoration and remembrance is held each year, around all souls’ tide, when we remember everyone who has passed away in the previous year.

The cost of a funeral in church varies depending whether there is a cemetery or crematorium service following. Your funeral directors will be able to help with this.

 Bereavement counselling groups are available at the Holy Trinity Church Trinity Centre in Sutton Coldfield (
