Burial at St. Martin’s is open to all people. Please contact the clergy so we can minister to you or your loved one during illness and at the time of death.
Burial services will follow the Rites for Burial in the Book of Common Prayer, involve the clergy of St. Martin’s, and require at least one planning meeting with the clergy beforehand. The Burial Office is a celebration of the resurrection, therefore we do not allow for open caskets in the church. If a pre-plan was not created, families of the deceased may use our funeral worksheet with the assistance of the clergy.
If you would like to pre-plan your funeral please let us know. You can download our Instructions Regarding My Death form to fill in and mail back to us, or contact a member of the clergy and we will assist you. We will keep your wishes on file in our church office. Please also consider our planned giving options at this time.
There is no fee for the clergy or the facility for the funeral service. There are charges for the music director, musicians, bulletin preparation, the altar guild, and the sexton. Additional fees are also charged related to receptions and the Mary Hare Taylor Knight Memorial Columbarium. A fee schedule is available from the church office or you may view current fees here.
