Weddings
At least one of the couple planning to marry at Holy Cross must be a Baptised Christian. All weddings are conducted in the Church, according to the rite of the 1929 Scottish Prayer Book.

Funerals
Services are conducted by the Rector according to the funeral rite in the 1929 Scottish Prayer Book. The cremated remains of departed members of the congregation may be interred in the Holy Cross Garden of Remembrance

 ‘We Scottish Episcopalians have a long history of praying for the Christian departed. Our practice is founded on the teaching of the Bible and Christian practice from the early days of the Church, as attested to by the Church Fathers. We pray for them particularly at every Eucharist, but also at every funeral.’ This short paper by the Rector explains why we pray for the dead, and why we have a long tradition of doing so: Praying for the Christian Departed in Scottish Episcopacy (.pdf)
