Prayers for use when someone has died, or on the day of a funeral

Sadly, at the moment, numbers able to attend a funeral are very limited. For some, it is also not possible to go to visit someone who is dying, or visit the bereaved. Here are some prayers, which you can use on hearing of a death, or on the day of a funeral.

Bibles

  • If you do not have a bible at home, the version we use at the Cathedral is the New Revised Standard Version. You can look passages up in this online here or it is widely available to buy.
  • For children, the Lion Storyteller Bible and the Children of God Storybook Bible, compiled by Desmond Tutu are worth looking at.
