Cross symbol in church records

I have been learning family history on my own for 20 years now but I have never heard the answer to my question. When there is a cross symbol after a name in a church record (or other record) does it always mean that the person died? Is there a name for this symbol? It is one of those things that I think everyone thinks that everyone knows. But I do not.
