The Cathedral is available for the funerals of Catholics, which will normally be a Requiem Mass celebrated at 10.30am on a weekday. Please note that you should approach a Funeral Director in the first place, who can then be in contact with the Cathedral to discuss possible dates and times.

The Catholic Church has always focused on the dignity of the human body in life and death and recommends the burial of the deceased. Cremation is permitted, but the remains must be buried in one location and cannot be divided or scattered.
