how to arrange

If your loved one lived within the parish when they died then you have the right to their burial at St John's in Blindley Heath, or to have their ashes interred at either at St John's, or at St Nicholas' in Godstone.  

If your enquiry relates to a recent burial behind St Nicholas' in Godstone then the burial is probably within the area owned by Godstone Parish Council, whose contact details are on their website.

We are allowed to permit memorials after a burial, or an interment of ashes, provided it complies with the restrictions below. 

We have no authority to permit anything else, but permission can be sought from the Chancellor of the Diocese however I cannot guarantee that permission will be granted in any particular case. Anything introduced into the churchyard without appropriate permission may have to be removed.

Further information can be found here.


This parish takes the safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. Further information about this can be found here.


Enquiries for weddings, baptisms, funerals, home visits or communion should be made to Rev. Peter O'Connell on 01883 741945 or
