We have access to a body washing facilities available to anyone who wishes to use it, we also have a system in place involving the local authorities and funeral services which can be arranged with one phone call. Please contact us in case someone near and dear passes away and we will provide help/ advice to make their last journey comfortable with respect and regards in accordance with the muslim Sharia.

We understand this is a difficult time for anyone and planning can be emotional that is why we ask you to be patient when it comes to these arrangements especially at the weekends when most of the council offices are closed. We recommend that two people male and female speak to us where we can sit down and explain the whole process and what steps to take. This can be a testing time but with the right advice and communication we can help ease the process and emotions on loved ones. The masjid has people available day and night who know the correct procedure and have the relevant experience, contacts and information to help you and your families.

Please contact us

Up to date Janaza / funeral announcements will appear on the mosque Facebook and Twitter pages.
