If you would like to arrange to hold a funeral in St Peter’s Church, the first step is to discuss this with Rev Rebecca Gilbert, by telephone (01223 817805) or email (

Anyone who lives in Barton is entitled to be buried in the churchyard and to have an Anglican funeral in the church if they wish. We also welcome enquiries from villagers of other denominations and will do everything we can to assist. If you have a long association with Barton but no longer live here it is still worth contacting us and we will see if we can help.

Fees for funerals are set annually by the Church of England, and the fees table for 2015 can be downloaded here.
